Homeschool Support Rally (HR 2084)
Posted by cann0nba11 on April 7, 2009
Today at the Texas State Capital about 250 supporters of homeschooling and parental rights let their voices be heard in support of Texas Parental Rights Restoration Act (TPRRA) (HB 2084). We thanked the many Texas legislators that are fighting to support our rights and put an end to crazy lawsuits that, among other things, allow grandparents to steal children away from their parents simply because the parents choose to homeschool. Governor Perry is an ardent supporter of homeschool rights and was the final speaker. (I got the chance to meet him afterwards.)
Committee members have been contacted. At this point the most effective strategy is for these legislators to hear only from their own constituents asking for support of the TPRRA. If your state representative is part of the Human Services Committee, please call and ask him/her to restore parental rights in Texas by supporting HB 2084 in the hearing on Thursday.
