Please let me know if this is OK and if I may interview someone. Thank you." -- Marion Walsh, Esq., Editor of School Superintendent's Insider and Private School Director's Legal Guide, Brownstone Publishers
"Your website is outstanding, with a great summary of the inspection policy" -- Scott Bullock, senior attorney with the Institute for Justice, referring to our page on Fourth Amendment rights regarding home inspections.

"Your HB- site is excellent, and I'll post a link to it when I have a chance." -- Marjorie Heins, founder of the Free Expression Policy Project at the Brennan Center for Justice at the NYU School of Law.

"I just wanted to say thanks so much for responding, and so quickly. I didn't get a response from the ACLU or my state's (Oregon') Department of Education after sending them emails a few weeks ago. So, thanks for the help and consideration." -- name withheld, public high school student, Oregon.
