The NYC Department of Education has one of the worst track records in New York State for properly handling home school paperwork.  They regularly lose properly filed home school paperwork and then Social Workers from the Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) to the homes of innocent families to harass them.  Not only is this unfair and abusive to those home school families, it slows down ACS workers from investigating real cases.

Well, enough is enough!  On Monday, December 5th, the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) along with a NYC LEAH chapter filed a lawsuit on behalf of a new homeschooling mom. They are suing NYC, the Board of Education, Mayor de Blasio, and other school officials.

Here’s what you can do to help:

1) Pray

2) If you are not a member of HSLDA, become one. (Join HSLDA)

3) Check our website frequently for information as we continue to fight for our freedoms.

4) Pray for Michael & Carolyn Bailey as they continue LEAH’s work legislatively in Albany.

5) Be ready to make phone calls as needed.
