We, the people, as represented by our signatures below, are hereby calling on all members of Congress to REJECT adoption of any proposed bill that purports to affect the rights of parents and students who home school, and to REPEAL any such bills already adopted for the following reasons: (1) because parents and students who home school do not receive any federal funding, Congress has no authority under the United States Constitution to adopt any bill affecting the education of students who home school because under the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution education is a power that is not delegated to the Congress and is therefore a power that remains in the States and the people; (2) because Congress is being led to believe that one well funded and politically connected organization, Home School Legal Defense Association, otherwise known as HSLDA, represents the majority of parents and students who homeschool when, in fact, it represents only approximately 80,000 out of an estimated 2 MILLION parents and students who home school who have different opinions regarding the proposed legislation and whose opinions should and must be heard before Congress votes on legislation affecting them. We, the undersigned, are urging the members of Congress to REJECT Section #522 of HR1815 now, as well as other proposed legislation which contain any reference to home schooling, and to REPEAL any bills already adopted which contain any reference to home schooling.
