Forward: NHN Nevada Homeschool Network
Dear Nevada Homeschool Families, November 2008
As an emotional election ends we find some people excited at the outcome and others filled with anxiety. Perhaps there is no better time than this to find our collective common ground….. our desire and commitment to uphold parental choice in education, most specifically our option to homeschool. We hold a common value, have made a challenging decision, and together, through the voice of Nevada Homeschool Network, have garnered one of the most favorable homeschool laws in the country.
Nevada Homeschool Network needs your continued support. Even as we enjoy tremendous homeschool freedoms today, NHN is diligently monitoring Bill Draft Requests being put forth for the 2009 Legislative Session. Although there is no anticipation of adverse changes to homeschooling, it warrants attention when PSAH (Public School at Home), charter schools, or other alternative forms of education may be addressed in the upcoming session, potentially pulling homeschooling into the mix.
In addition to all the work at the legislature, representatives of NHN remain ever available to help with state or local issues that require expertise in our individual rights to homeschool. Most recently NHN has been instrumental in assisting families in both Clark and Washoe county having trouble getting high school credits accepted at public schools. This service and assistance, in conjunction with NHN’s knowledge of the law, is invaluable to all parents seeking to educate their children at home.
