CHAP Legislative Day
Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:
I want to encourage you to participate in the upcoming CHAP Legislative Day on Wednesday, December 11, 2013, to support passage of House Bill 1013. You will have an opportunity to visit your state representative and senator and ask them to support this legislation that will significantly improve Pennsylvania’s homeschool law.
Following are the noteworthy changes that HB 1013 would make in the current law for home education programs:
HB 1013 has been in House Education Committee since March 15, 2013, with no action on it scheduled. Legislators, particularly members of this committee, need to know how important passage of this bill is to homeschoolers. The current homeschool laws were passed in 1988, 25 years ago, at a time when there was a great deal of skepticism about the viability of homeschooling as an educational option. As a result, Pennsylvania’s law remains one of the most restrictive in the nation, second only to New York. It is time for Pennsylvania to join the majority of states that have enacted laws that do not demand unreasonable and unnecessary government oversight of parents teaching their children at home.
Very truly yours,
Dewitt T. Black, III
