California--Update on Eastin Request for New Home School Law

From the HSLDA E-lert Service...

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Thank you for your calls to the state legislature in response to
HSLDA's joint alert with Family Protection Ministries regarding
Delaine Eastin's letter to the legislature. We are hearing reports
back that they are being flooded with calls. Your voice is being

In response to Delaine Eastin's letter, yesterday Family Protection
Ministries hand-delivered to every Assembly Member and Senator
HSLDA's response. Please read and feel free to disseminate this

If you've called your Assembly Member and Senator, no further calls
are necessary at this time. Again, this is a state legislative issue
and you should not call your representatives at the federal level.
Some of you have called us concerned that when you called your
legislator, you were asked to leave your name and address. This is
routine and there is no reason to worry about giving them contact
information. The office is confirming you are indeed a constituent of
the particular legislator you are calling.

HSLDA is working closely with Family Protection Ministries, Christian
Home Educators Association of California and other state home school
organizations. All options on how to proceed are being carefully
weighed. Be assured that we all are actively considering the best
possible course of action to preserve the freedom that home schoolers
currently enjoy in California.

Continue to pray that God would calm this sea of trouble. Remember
that God has protected home schoolers in California for 20 years and
continue to trust in His deliverance in the face of this trial.

Michael Smith
President of HSLDA
