HSLDA applauds homeschool parents who seek to enter the public arena by running for office. They can bring a unique perspective on many important issues. They have experienced first-hand the importance of protecting the right to homeschool.
So why would HSLDA oppose a bill designed to promote knowledge of our nation’s history and government filed by Senator Phil Jensen, a homeschool dad in South Dakota?
Senate Bill 164 was no doubt motivated by laudable intentions. But the bill should not become law for these reasons.
