This spring I’ve been working with the Texas Home School Coalition (i.e. THSC) as their Legislative Liaison. I also help with some of their web-related needs as well as their Capitol Day events.

Our latest event was… 9 hours ago(?). 150 homeschoolers from all across Texas came to the State Capitol, learned about good citizenship, and lobbied against HB 253; all in 1 day.

Like every event, there’s a lot of footwork that goes on behind the scenes. I’d like to thank my volunteers from last night. Without yall… well… actually, I don’t want to imagine what it would have been like.

  • 1 “secret” location
  • 11 friends
  • 360 folders
  • 6000 papers

If  you’re a homeschooler then you need to come to Capitol Days. Trust me, you won’t regret it. We only have 2 more sessions left before 2012.

This April. This May. Be there. For more information about THSC Capitol Days, see here.

    Dang, I could have helped you guys stuff folders. And looking at the pic’s I know right where you were.

  2. That’s true, it didn’t even cross my mind. :P Fortunately, we had plenty of volunteers show up to help.

    HB 253? Is that against homeschoolers? abortion? etc.?

  5. @The Chronicler, HB 253 is related to compulsory attendance investigations. Full details can be read here.

    After our work that day, we’ve heard directly from the author of the bill that he plans to remove the portions of the bill that we opposed. So I would say that THSC and Texan homeschoolers were quite successful. :)
