Lobbying the Texas Legislature

One responsibility of THSC is not only to protect the established laws that safeguard the right to home school in Texas—and ultimately the right of all parents to direct the care, custody, and education of their children—but it is also to fight for new laws that expand the freedoms of parents in this great state.

THSC acts as a GUARDIAN over the pro-parental rights and home schooling laws already established.

THSC acts as a WATCHDOG over upcoming legislation that could affect your rights as a home schooler and as a parent.

THSC acts as a WARRIOR to move forward legislation that will expand your parental freedoms in Texas.
