Nevada--State Board of Education to Vote on Homeschool Regulations

From the HSLDA E-lert Service...

December 9, 2002

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

The Nevada State Board of Education will cast their final vote on
changes to homeschool regulations in just a few days. The Board
meeting is scheduled for December 14, in Las Vegas, and by
videoconference in Carson City. Although we have every indication the
Board intends to approve the changes homeschoolers have requested, we
encourage families to attend this historic meeting if at all

One reason these proposed changes are likely to go through is that
homeschoolers have rallied to defend their constitutional rights.
Earlier this year, there were grave concerns that the State Board of
Education would take away the "approved" status of one science
curriculum because, in the words of one Department of Education
consultant, it was a "religion course with some science content."


Show your support for homeschooling by attending the State Board of
Education meeting on Saturday, December 14, in Las Vegas, or by
videoconference in Carson City. The meeting is open to the public and
will be held in the Department of Education Building, 1820 East
Sahara, Las Vegas, in the Board Room. The videoconference in Carson
City will be in Room 101 at the Department of Education Building at
700 E. 5th Street. The meeting will start at 1:30 p.m. Bring your
well-behaved children (please find a babysitter for fussy babies!)
and wear red, white, and blue for freedom!

Very truly yours,

Scott W. Somerville
HSLDA Staff Attorney
