Although we have lost the philosophical exemption in Vermont, other states still have it. If you are in a state that still has it, do everything you can to hold onto it and consider using the following when you use it. Look closely at the language of any form that requires you to sign an agreement that you disagree with. Consider using an attachment to the waiver to be able to sign something that is true for you. Consider crossing out anything you do not agree with on the state’s form and attaching this document to it.
