March 4, 2022 – Voting Day on SB 201 and AB 122
The time is NOW to call the Senate Committee on Education
The Wisconsin Senate Committee on Education is voting TODAY AT MIDDAY on SB 201 and AB 122.
The Committee is taking the unusual action of voting on a large package of education bills in private by paper ballot, instead of in public by voice vote or roll call vote. We have been informed the ballots will go out at 12:30 and must be returned by 1:30. If you have not yet done so, please call all the Committee members listed below immediately and tell them to VOTE NO on SB 201 and AB 122.
Senator Alberta Darling, Committee Chair: (608) 266-5830
Senator Kathleen Bernier, Vice Chair: (608) 266-7511
Senator Stephen Nass: (608) 266-2635
Senator John Jagler: (608) 266-5660
Senator Chris Larson: (608) 266-7505
Senator Jeff Smith: (608) 266-8546
Senator LaTonya Johnson: (608) 266-2500
This bill threatens our homeschooling rights by confusing the difference between homeschools (based on inherent parental rights) and private schools (based on state law). It is critical that WHPA members and supporters speak up in defense of our homeschooling law.
Today is the day to stop this bill from moving through the legislature. If SB 201 and/or its companion bill, AB 122, are passed out of the Senate Committee on Education, they will move quickly through the Senate Committee on Rules and on to the final Senate floor session for the year, which will be Tuesday, March 8, after which, if passed, will be presented to Gov. Evers for his signature or veto.
For 38 years, WHPA has been working to protect our reasonable homeschooling law. Our greatest strength is our grassroots membership, which hails from across our state, and includes families of all kinds, from diverse backgrounds, faiths, political interests, and homeschooling styles. Homeschooling unites us all, and together we can defend the right of every parent in Wisconsin to direct the education of their own children. Please join WHPA in opposing SB 201 and AB 122 and this attempt to undermine the clear legal structure of homeschooling in Wisconsin.
