Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

If you are concerned about how the Common Core State Standards will impact your ability to teach your children at home, you may want to attend the Republican Ward 13 public forum June 13 at 7 p.m. The meeting will be held at Calvary Chapel Church, 6770 Brookpark Road.

Sarah Fowler, Ohio State Board Of Education member, District 7, will explain how the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) affect the quality of Ohio’s education system and why Ohio should investigate and reconsider its implementation. Sarah says, “Parents have the God-given right and responsibility to direct their child’s education. And parents should be able to choose the best educational option for their child.”

The forum will also feature Melanie Elsey, legislative director for the American Policy Roundtable as well as the legislative liaison for Christian Home Educators of Ohio. She will provide a little history on how CCSS came to be incorporated into Ohio’s school system. Melanie will also discuss how the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) is available to assist homeschoolers with home school legal help.

Learn how our legislators have given the authority to develop Ohio’s education standards to agencies outside of and away from local control by Ohioans.

For additional information about the meeting contact Joseph A. Shearey, RPCC Ward 13 leader, at jshearey@att.net.

Very truly yours,

Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
Staff Attorney
