    A WEIRD COINCIDENCE Beryl Amedee was the subject of a very positive HSing article I blogged this morning. Then, this thoroughly disheartening HSLDA “e-lert” arrived this afternoon. Mrs. Amedee is prominently featured.

    On August 13 2002, three Louisiana legislators met with several child welfare and attendance officers and a Christian Home Educators Fellowship (CHEF) of Louisiana representative. Beryl Amedee, wife of CHEF of LA President John Amedee, represented CHEF at the meeting. Mrs. Amedee attended the meeting expecting to offer constructive suggestions for improving Louisiana’s truancy laws. Instead, she was told the meeting was dedicated to announcing the intent to “tighten up” on homeschools in Louisiana.

    After the meeting, these legislators wrote to Cecil Picard, Superintendent of the Louisiana Department of Education. Their letter states, “We are interested in filing bills for the 2003 Regular Session to tighten up on the requirements for home study and homeschooling.” The legislature will begin its session on March 31, 2003.
    This gives us five months to get organized and block this legislation. Visit the link to read the letter.
