Senate to Revote on UN Treaty after January 1, 2013


This recent victory was only a warm-up for preparing us to defeat the UNCRC. After the new Senators are sworn-in during January, the battle will be even more difficult. CHEK will be standing for parental rights in Kentucky. Will you stand strong with us?  Help CHEK spread the word!

> Dear HSLDA Members:
>
> I am so grateful for your efforts over the past few weeks as you stood up for parental rights and against the United Nations dictating care for disabled people. Your calls, emails, and personal visits made the difference in defeating the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
>
> As we and many others said, this UN treaty was never about protecting the disabled: our nation’s laws already provide the greatest protection for these precious people, and our nation’s great example should be held up as a model for the rest of the world. Rather, this UN treaty was all about who should make crucial decisions for people with disabilities: their parents and caregivers, or UN bureaucrats? This UN treaty was all about who should make laws and policy for American citizens: our elected leaders, or unaccountable UN bureaucrats?
>
> You answered the call, and provided the crucial support which made the Senate listen to our message as we lobbied on Capitol Hill: Parents, not UN bureaucrats, should decide how to care for their disabled children. America should make the laws for Americans.
>
> Defeating the CRPD yesterday was a great victory. We won the battle, but not the war. Senate leadership has already announced they will bring the CRPD back up for a vote in the next Congress. We know that the Obama administration is pushing for more UN treaties, chief of which is the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
>
> Will you stand with us as we stand against the UN taking away parental rights? The internationalists are promising to come back with a vengeance. They are determined to ratify this treaty and others.
>
>
> We can and must fight back. We need to educate the American public that these UN treaties will place American policy and our families under the control of the United Nations. We will have to conduct a massive public relations educational campaign about American sovereignty and the severe negative impact these UN treaties will have on our liberty.
>
> While we were able to persuade 38 senators to stand with us in opposition to the CRPD yesterday, those 38 Senators are going to face an incredible amount of heat because of their stand. We must commit to even greater measures and efforts in order to gain victory in upcoming battles in the next few months.
>
> We only have a few short weeks to prepare for the treaty being re-introduced and we need your help! Please give sacrificially today to our Homeschool Freedom Fund to halt this pro-UN surge.
>
> I need your help right now. Your non-tax-deductible donation will allow us to get the message out about the dangers of the CRPD and other UN treaties. More importantly, it will help preserve your God-given freedom to direct the education and upbringing of your children.
>
> For Liberty,

So you’ve decided to homeschool! Now what?

So You’ve Decided to Homeschool! Now what? D.Bradley Here is some direction for those of you who have decided to home educate, but you don’t know where to start. 1. Start with your kids This is going to be a boring and fruitless endeavor if you don’t have any kids to educate. If you do, take a look at them.   Not one of those motherly bruise-inventories or an investigation into what they’ve been eating by inspecting the corners of their mouths, but a good, quiet observation of them.   Think about what they’re like, what their gifts and talents are, what they enjoy, what they don’t.   Who are they?   (We know you’ve asked this question of yourself before, like after the deafening crash at the supermarket or after you found the harmonica-shaped hole in the living room wall, but we don’t mean it that way now.)   Who is this little person? Fact: every child is different, and no single approach is best for all kids. But that’s what’s great about homeschooling.   I

Letter of Notification of Your Private Homeschool

The time of year will be quickly approaching to notify your school district of your private school!  This is the first step in creating an official private school in your home.  We receive many questions about this step, and encourage you to read the following information, including eight of the most common questions with answers. Here is a sample copy of the  Letter of Notification .  You can see that  KRS 159.160  states, “The reports shall be made within the two weeks of the beginning of each school year.”  So, if your school begins on Monday, August 3, your letter needs to arrive at the office of the Superintendent by Friday, August 14, the end of the second school week.  You can find the address and name of the Superintendent in this  Kentucky School Directory .  This is a 2021 directory.   You can also look at your district's website. .   As in the past, CHEK recommends that you send your letter certified mail with a return receipt.  When your

Declaration of Participation Forms for Title II, III, and IDEA-B

Kentucky is a private school state, meaning there are no "homeschool" laws on the books! Yes, you read that right! Pioneer homeschool leaders were wise to think ahead 25 years ago when the case of private church schools and homeschooling arose. Hang in here with me for just a minute and you will understand the connection between this statement and the forms. Your homeschool is a private school that operates in your home, the exact same as the local parochial or private church schools. Have you heard the phrase, "There is strength in numbers", or "A three cord strand cannot be broken"? We fall under private school laws. Of course, the 4th amendment gives us right to privacy in our home (yea!). Many people do not understand this about our Kentucky laws, and this was the perfect opportunity to interject. Now about the forms, federal law requires that the state send every (yep, you guessed it) private school these forms; if they do not get a response t
