West Virginia Home School Day
February 21, 2013
Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,
Good news for homeschoolers in West Virginia! This week, the West Virginia House of Delegates adopted House Resolution 11 and the West Virginia State Senate adopted Senate Resolution 14 to designate February 19, 2013 as “West Virginia Home School Day.”
In the House, the resolution was sponsored by Delegates Boggs, Espinosa, Staggers, Rowan, O’Neal, Sobonya, Pasdon, Householder, Walker and Sumner. The Senate resolution was sponsored by Senators Sypolt, Unger, Plymale, Fitzsimmons, Beach and Carmichael. You can find their contact information to thank them for their interest and support here.
The resolutions recognize “that parental involvement and individualized attention to educational success are unique and basic components of home schooling” and that “Home-schooled students exhibit self-confidence and good citizenship and are prepared academically to meet the challenges of today’s society.” It is this recognition that spurs the legislature to praise the “students, teachers and families involved with home schooling in West Virginia for their dedication to excellence in education.”
Thank you so much for your support of homeschooling and homeschool freedom. It is your investment in the lives and education of the next generation that inspires recognition and praise.
Montani semper liberi,
Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney
