A Message to the Homeschooling Community: Responding to California

A message from Mike Smith
Dear Members,
The events reported out of Riverside County last week shocked all of us. The charges brought against the parents are horrific and, along with you, we are grieving for the 13 siblings.
Public news stories like this may create a backlash in public opinion. But based on our experience with thousands of homeschooling families over the last 35 years, we know that this case is an aberration. And we reject attempts to hastily target homeschooling as the problem and regulations as a quick fix.
We’ve been contacted by some members, non-members, and group leaders expressing concern about the possibility of increased regulation or public distrust of homeschooling. These are understandable natural reactions.
But we want to reassure you and affirm that your right to homeschool is clearly established.
Do not be fearful.
Continue homeschooling as you usually do.
Be confident.
Be friendly.
Keep encouraging your kids to go outside and play.
And go on being involved in your neighborhood and your larger community.
HSLDA is committed to protecting the right to homeschool. We’ve always believed the heart of our mission at HSLDA is to take the worry out of the legal and legislative aspects of homeschooling so that parents like you can focus on loving, enjoying, and helping your families thrive.
Homeschool on, my friends!
Mike Smith is president of HSLDA.

Make March Rememberance of Nancy Schaefer?

I've got a proposition: How about every year we make sure that "March is Nancy Schaefer Month!" Please spread Nancy's message to all of your families, friends, groups and acquaintances in honor of this wonderful, Pro-Child, Pro-Family and anti-CPS corruption lady! Let's make sure that nobody can forget her or her message! Thank you.----HopeY

Yes, and unfortunately, Nancy died from an unfortunate death. However, we, as Family, need to focus on the Reform she was seeking as Senator.
  (Download the Senator's Letter, Titled "THE CORRUPT BUSINESS OF CHILD PROTECTIVE
", Rev: 09.25.08.  "Also, a Discussion Point brought up in this post on FB, Juvenile Dependency: Breaking The Cycle )
Here is a list of Senator Nancy Schaefer's Major Points:
  1. Call for an independent audit of the Department of Family and Children’s Services (DFCS) to expose corruption and fraud.
  2. Activate immediate change. Every day that passes means more families and children are subject to being held hostage.
  3. End the financial incentives that separate families.
  4. Grant to parents their rights in writing.
  5. Mandate a search for family members to be given the opportunity to adopt their own relatives.
  6. Mandate a jury trial where every piece of evidence is presented before removing a child from his or her parents.
  7. Require a warrant or a positive emergency circumstance before removing children from their parents. (Judge Arthur G. Christean, Utah Bar Journal, January, 1997 reported that “except in emergency circumstances, including the need for immediate medical care, require warrants upon affidavits of probablecause before entry upon private property is permitted for the forcible removal of children from their parents.”)
  8. Uphold the laws when someone fabricates or presents false evidence. If a parent alleges fraud, hold a hearing with the right to discovery of all evidence.
