In early August, HSLDA attorneys Tj Schmidt and Peter Kamakawiwoole will travel to the Big Apple to meet with attorneys and officials from the New York City’s central office of homeschooling.

Eight months ago, HSLDA filed a lawsuit against the city on behalf of Tanya Acevedo and other homeschoolers, who have experienced chronic delays when dealing with that office.

After her paperwork disappeared at the central office, Tanya was reported to social services on allegations of educational neglect. And while that investigation was ultimately closed in Tanya’s favor, she wasn’t the first—or last—homeschooler to be adversely affected by the city’s actions.

Shortly after that suit was filed, the city reached out to HSLDA in an effort to resolve these issues. Since then, we’ve had several fruitful conversations with the city, and are hopeful that this progress will continue in August. We greatly covet your prayers as these discussions continue.
