HOME SCHOOLERS HOLD RALLY IN ALBANY



Purcellville, VA - Tom Washburne, Director of the National Center for Home Education, a division of Home School Legal Defense Association, will be in New York tomorrow for the Home School Rally at the State Capitol Building. HSLDA enters into its 20th Anniversary year this month and has been at the forefront of the modern homeschool movement. "This year, New York has an opportunity to lift the regulatory burden from both homeschoolers and public school administrators," said Chris Klicka, Senior Counsel for HSLDA.

Homeschooling is entering the mainstream and this is in large part due to the efforts of the HSLDA legal team.

"Home school graduates are succeeding in all walks of life and consequently many families are gaining the confidence to begin homeschooling for themselves," said Klicka
