Previous Entry Question for Homeschoolers Feb. 4th, 2011 @ 03:32 pm Next Entry
Are you a member of the HSLDA? If so, why? If not, why not? What benefits do you get (besides the promise of legal defense, I mean)? Have you used any of the things offered (discounted curriculum, assistance with special needs kids (including gifted/talented), etc? If so, are the discounts good, or can you beat them on eBay/CraigsList/etc?

I mean, it *sounds* good...but it's $115/annually. I can do a LOT with $115.....but the thought of somebody professional "having my back" is pretty persuasive.

And yes, I'm in a very permissive state....but you've got bozos everywhere that want to cause problems in the name of "the children". I really don't want to get in over my head with "do-gooders"....but I don't want to spend money unnecessarily, either.

Thanks!

I am a member, because your $12 a month (which is NOT bad, IMO) pays for ANY legal representation you might need in regards to your parenting (because your parenting IS the educational process). And they specialize in homeschool type issues, so you can't GET better representation. Plus they keep you up on what's happening in every state (what cases happened that month) that might make a difference, what laws are going thru, etc. It's one of the nicer services I've ever paid for.

I am a member also, because I like the idea of having someone who knows all of the laws inside and out to be able to speak for me. Besides that - even if I never use their services it helps other people who need it.
