Eyes and Ears Legislative Watch Committee

By Dorothy Karman

The 2013 Oregon Legislative Session begins February 4th and runs through June. Approximately 3,000 bills will be introduced during the session. Any one of them might contain a portion that could be detrimental to home education families. We must be vigilant. We have to scan each bill to find the ones that impact our freedoms and our parental rights. We don’t exaggerate when we say that those freedoms are threatened every time the legislature is in session.

In past sessions OCEANetwork board members and a few volunteers looked through the summaries of all 3,000 bills. This can become overwhelming. For only a few people to be involved is time consuming. You can help! OCEANetwork is building an “Eyes and Ears Committee” of volunteers to help scan through the bills. Will you join that team? Email us at mail@oceanetwork.org if you’d like to be on the Committee. Here’s the job description.

The Oregon Legislature posts all the bills on their website. The members of the Eyes and Ears Committee will divide the bills up so no one person will have to look at all the bills. You will scan the summary of bills for certain key words (see list below). If you find one of the key words, and you think it might have a direct or indirect impact on homeschooling families, look over the list of bills we are watching on our website. If you don’t see the bill that you think might cause problems on the site, notify the chairman of the Eyes and Ears Legislative Watch Committee. Experienced homeschool freedom watchers and legal counsel will review the bill.

That’s all there is to it. You can be on the frontline to protect homeschool freedom right from your own home just a few minutes a week. Volunteer to be on the Eyes and Ears Committee today by emailing mail@oceanetwork.org. Thank you.

Key words and phrases to look for in legislative summaries:

  • Education
  • Compulsory attendance
  • ORS 339.030
  • Parent(s)
  • Child(dren)
  • Private tutor
  • Child abuse
  • Mandatory reporter
  • School
  • Public school
  • Private school
  • Home school
  • Department of Human Services
  • State Board of Education
  • Superintendent of Public Instruction
  • School district
  • School funding
  • Online education
  • Charter school
  • Educational Service District
  • Apprenticeship
  • Intern
  • Disabilities
  • Child with special needs
  • Foster care
  • Diploma
  • Certificate of completion

The list of keywords is somewhat long, but not every bill that contains a keyword will impact our freedoms. The keywords just clue us to look a little more closely at the bill.

Thanks again for considering helping protect your freedoms to homeschool.

Yours for Liberty,
Dorothy Karman

Thank you for the key words list. I video taped the opening session of the House on 1-14-2013 in short 1:20 or less videos, which are on my channel Floraspec on www.YouTube.com I hope to video between 3-5pm after I get off work and post same day to my site pressing items. I have an idea that I am working on to get a prayer closet at the capital, if not there at Salem House of Prayer on Liberty downtown next to the former Wells Fargo Bank, hopefully at least a certain Representative can have a device people can place prayers on that would come up at Salem House of Prayer automatically. It is in the dream phase, your prayers appreciated. Advancing prayer in Oregon as State Coordinator for Cry Out America www.AwakeningAmerica.us Marion County Coordinator for the Governors Prayer Team led by Aaron Auer & I also lead as Marion County Coordinator for www.OathKeepers.org Thank you for all you do. Tom.

What i do not understood is actually how you're not actually much more neatly-preferred than you might be right now. You are so intelligent. You realize therefore significantly in relation to this matter, made me in my opinion imagine it from so many varied angles. Its like women and men are not involved until it is something to do with Lady gaga! Your own stuffs great. Always take care of it up!
