HOLD THE LINE: Defend Your Family's Freedom to Homeschool
Did you know that mere decades ago homeschooling families stayed indoors for fear of truancy laws?
Did you know that last year a California junior college had to be sued to pass records on to UC Berkeley because the student in question had been homeschooled?
Did you know that California's education codes does not mention homeschooling, even once?
Nathan Pierce of Family Protection Ministries serves our community by constantly monitoring and influencing legislation that could affect our ability to homeschool. Join us as he explains how and why private homeschooling is legal, the dangers that threaten that status, and the one thing you can do to hold the line!
Joining Nathan is CHEA Board Member, Andrew Vandever, a homeschool alumni and passionate advocate of private home education. Andrew will look at the biblical basis for homeschooling, encouraging and challenging us to be more committed in this important journey.
