HSLDA's attorneys are working for you.

Logic may seem like an outdated or impractical subject to study.

5. Girl’s Passion for Music Overcomes Disability

6. GenJ Camps: Changing the Lives of Teens

When HSLDA launched Generation Joshua in 2002, our primary motivation was political. We feared our country was going in the wrong direction and that only the next generation could redeem America’s future. Since then we have come to believe that the overall spiritual and moral development of youth is the most important aspect of Generation Joshua. GenJ summer camps are the chief tool we’re using to literally change the lives of young people. Learn more and register >>

Draw a logical conslusion.
