New Hampshire Homeschoolers Score A Victory!

This from Deborah Stevenson and NHELD.
New Hampshire homeschoolers won a major victory, defeating a legislative attempt to impose onerous regulations on them. The vote was 324-34 on the bill, HB368.

The parents in New Hampshire worked long and hard calling and writing their legislators, informing them of the value of homeschooling, and of the value of preserving and protecting the rights of parents. It proves, once again, the power of “we the people” joining forces in defense of liberty. A major battle was won, but they have one more battle ahead of them. The other bill, HB1580, is currently in committee. The text is here.

A public hearing on that bill will be held next week, Thursday, January 21.
