MI Lawmakers Target Homeschooling

A Call to Pray & Contact Your Michigan Legislators

Yesterday, Representative Matt Koleszar, Chair of Michigan's House Education Committee, expressed his desire to require all homeschool families register their children with state government.

He posted on X, “Michigan is one of only 11 states that doesn’t count or register homeschooled children, and abusive parents are taking advantage of that to avoid being found out. It’s time to support all Michigan students and change that. Michigan cannot allow this loophole to continue.”

While SLG ardently opposes any and all acts of child abuse and actively works to aid the most vulnerable, we remain dedicated champions of Christian parenting and homeschooling.

There are numerous inaccuracies and false presumptions in Rep. Koleszar's statement, and it important that engaged Christian citizens respectfully bring truth into the public dialogue:

As our friends at Michigan Christian Homeschool Network (MICHN) stated in a recent press release on the subject, "Instead of exploiting a false political narrative about home education to make headlines, Representative Koleszar’s time would be better spent focusing on improving Michigan’s struggling public school system, focusing his attention on the real problems that plague the state’s Child Protective Services and the abuse of children in union-backed schools."

Even while the legislature is on recess this month, many legislators are working on crafting policy, you can help ensure that your values are represented in that policy by speaking truth in this vital moment.

We urge you to join us in prayer for all elected leaders and to share your thoughts and concerns with Rep. Koleszar and with your own state representative and senator.

for Christas & the Constitution

Christmas is the time of year that Christian citizens celebrate one of the most significant events in all human history: the birth of Jesus Christ. Every year though, like the ancient King Herod, someone tries to kill Baby Jesus sleeping in His manger. Seeking to ban God from the public square, lawyers annually allege that the public display of the Nativity violates the Establishment Clause of the Constitution. In this special Faith & Freedom Lecture, Professor Wagner explains how the Supreme Court stole the meaning of Christmas – and how the Faith & Freedom Center helped restore freedom of religious conscience in our nation. Attendees receive a complimentary digital copy of Prof. Wagner’s mini-book, Christmas and the Constitution.

Thanks to generous donors like you, this event is FREE to attend. However, you must pre-register in order attend. Upon registration, you will receive a link to the event and your copy of Christmas and the Constitution.
