HB 253 – oppose

I hadn’t heard about Texas HB 253 until yesterday. An email forwarded to me from another homeschooling family contained a message from the Texas Home School Coalition about HB253.

Here’s a blog posting from Tim Lambert, head of THSC, about HB253.

I’m not a member of THSC but I am a member of HSLDA. Why haven’t they commented on this? Given HB 253 is having a public hearing today, I phoned HSLDA. Due to the volume of calls they had been receiving, they re-reviewed it and consequently coming out opposed to HB 253. eAlert and website posting with details are forthcoming.

Anyways, homeschoolers… time to get to contacting folks and get this bill opposed. When you read the text of the bill, it sounds “reasonable” on the surface, but the potential impacts of it are scary for parental rights and autonomy.
