Subject: Please pass 39 on Home School Amendments
Date: Thu Mar 06 18:53:25 MST 2014
Dear Representative,

I am writing to ask you to please pass SB 39 out of committee and ensure home school families the right to educate their children as they choose. I have been closely associated with many home school families over the past 30 years and I know them to be responsible adults who make thoughtful decisions about how to educate their children. This bill allows homeschoolers to be free of state interference in dictating what must be taught in the home and for how long.That right belongs to the parents.

Thank you for your time and consideration of this important matter.
