Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Please call now to support a bill that could put the brakes on an emerging threat to homeschool freedom: Common Core in New Jersey. The vote could take place as soon as tomorrow, Thursday, June 26.

The bill is S 2154. It would make New Jersey take a step back from Common Core and carefully analyze it from many angles. It would provide an opportunity for public input that was omitted before.

Action Requested

Please immediately call your New Jersey state senator with this simple message: “Please vote YES on S 2154. Let’s slow down and really think about whether Common Core is good for New Jersey students.”

It is not necessary to identify yourself as a homeschooler since this bill affects all parents.

Use this link to find out who your state senator is and their contact information.

Background

Since public education began, states and communities have decided what children should learn. Common Core is a huge federal power grab. It bribes states to give up their right to control what children learn and give it to a federal puppet agency called the National Governor’s Association.

Giving virtually all power to decide what every public school child in America must learn to one central authority sets up a framework for destroying freedom at the state, local, and family level.

It is naive to expect that homeschoolers will keep their precious right to decide what their children learn if every single public school child in America gets their reading assignments from an office in Washington, D.C.

It is not even unthinkable that one day a child who has not been taught the Common Core will be barred from college, scholarships, military enlistment, and job opportunities.

Many states—including New Jersey—“fell asleep at the wheel” and stumbled into Common Core without any public debate. Some states are now waking up and realizing their mistake.

The companion bill in the Assembly passed by an overwhelming majority. A wide variety of groups and politicians of many backgrounds support S 2154.

Thank you for standing with us for freedom!

Sincerely,

Scott A. Woodruff, Esq.,
