    World Nut Daily is proclaiming Victoire! and crediting HSLDA. I somehow doubt it:

    A campaign of telephone calls and e-mails from American homeschoolers is being credited with convincing legislators in France to withdraw a plan that would have made such home instruction efforts there illegal, according to the Home School Legal Defense Fund.

    … [For any folks with reading comprehension problems who happen to wander by, those are ellipses, which mean I’m skipping ahead]

    “The French Minister of the Family, Philippe Bas, vocally opposed several articles of this huge bill entitled ‘Protection de L’Enfance,’ which means for “Protection of the Children,'” Klicka wrote. “He specifically opposed the sections regulating and essentially prohibiting homeschooling, saying in the French parliament: ‘As they are, I am not favorable to these amendments [numbers 127 and 128], I find them too restrictive…'”

    Sounds like French homeschoolers contacted the French government and got this pulled. Good deal. Doesn’t mean that the sheeple network had anything to do with it, though.

    It takes them years to accomplish minor changes in US homeschool policy but they control the French like puppets. The answer is obvious. Farris and all his ilk should move to France, yesterday.

    Prove what, Mary? That the sheeple weren’t responsible or that we’d all be better off (the French homeschoolers excepted) if HSLDA moved to France?

    Is this how French guys talk? I was expecting so much more. . .

    Or maybe this is how American lawyers translate French guys. . .

    This is actually a fantastic idea though. Go around the world lobbying against legislation that has no way of passing and then take credit.
