Whether you homeschool your children or not, one of the best things you can give your children is yourself. Reading great books aloud to them accomplishes this while reducing the bewitching power of the screen...

ICHE Urgent Member Alert

From: ICHE Legal Advisory Board
To: All ICHE Members
Date: March 18, 2015
Subject: Senate Parental Rights Emails ASAP

In the Senate State Affairs Committee last Monday, House Bill 113 -- the Parental Rights Bill -- was thoroughly examined. In the end, Senate Majority Leader, Bart Davis (Republican, Idaho Falls) asked to have the bill held in committee for four days to reshape the bill to provide more specific and explicit protections for Idaho’s parents. The committee concurred.

There followed meetings between Senator Davis, Senator Todd Lakey, Senator Sherry Nuxoll, the sponsor of the bill (Representative Janet Trujillo), Julie Lynde (the Executive Director of Cornerstone Family Council), and Barry Peters (President of ICHE).

As a result of those meetings, the bill was entirely re-written to more explicitly protect the rights of parents to direct the care, custody, control, and education of their minor children. And, on Friday of this past week, the bill returned to the Senate committee. There, by a vote of seven to two, the bill was moved forward so that the draft amendments can be approved early this coming week.

Your prompt action is again needed. The Idaho Senate must hear from you with an email asking them to pass this important bill with the Davis Amendments. We anticipate that the amended bill will be voted upon by the full Senate by the end of this coming week.

With the Davis Amendments, this bill will continue to protect the right of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their minor children. As well, it will establish the circumstances under which the government may intrude upon those rights. Specifically, the state will only be permitted do so if the intrusion (1) is done pursuant to a compelling state interest, and (2) if it is done in the least intrusive manner possible. In other words, the bill will prohibit heavy-handed interference by the state in the realm of parental rights. But, where the safety or education of the child is in jeopardy, the state may intrude using just the amount of coercion needed to accomplish the compelling state interest.
____________________________

Immediate Action: Send an email to all Senators as follows:

1. Copy and paste the entire list of Senators’ email addresses from the bottom of this Alert into the “Blind Copy” or “BCC” box of your email message. Insert your own email address in the “To” box.

2. In your “Subject” box put “Support House Bill 113 with Davis Amendments”

3. Begin your message with “Dear Senator” as your salutation.

4. Compose a short and polite message explaining why the Senators should support House Bill 113 with the Davis Amendments. In your own words you could, for example, remind them that:

    a. The family is the cornerstone of society and must be strengthened.
    b. This bill will bring accountability for illegal intrusions into family relationships.
    c.  It doesn’t take a village. Children raised by their parents are the most successful in the long run.

5.  End by thanking them for their service to our state.

Please forward and share this alert to your contacts.

Idaho Senator Email Addresses:  Copy and paste into the Bcc field.

Who is discriminating against whom?

A California school district is imposing a set of values on all students, regardless of their parents' wishes. It would seem the battle against discrimination goes only one way.
