House Bill 2595: Bill to Remove West Virginia's 4-Year Requirement
H.B. 2595--FOUR-YEAR RULED WAIVED FOR TWO MORE YEARS
On May 2, Governor Wise signed into law House Bill 2595, which waives the four-year rule for home school families for the next two school years.
This is a major step toward permanent removal of this unfair rule. Your phone calls and visits to the capitol were a tremendous help in convincing lawmakers that change was necessary, and in stopping amendments to H.B. 2595 that would have reduced parental rights.
Many people sacrificed to help H.B. 2595 become law, but perhaps none so much as John Carey, Legislative Liaison for Christian Home Educators of West Virginia. He willingly dedicated innumerable uncompensated hours for trips to the capitol, meetings with legislators, and testimony before committees. He deserves our warmest thanks.
Our cause is just. We will continue to work against the onerous four-year rule until it is permanently removed. Thank you for standing with us for freedom.
H.B. 2595 was signed into law on May 2, 2001.
HSLDA supported H.B. 2595.
