HSLDA is suing New York City to stop mistreatment of homeschool families.

The Acevedo Case

For years, bureaucrats at the New York City’s central education office have routinely infringed on the rights of families to choose homeschooling. This indifference has led to delays and loss of services, and has caused false reports of educational neglect to be made to the city’s department of social services. Tanya Acevedo, a brand-new homeschooling mom, was falsely accused and investigated even though she had done nothing wrong. HSLDA is suing the city on her behalf.
