A few weeks ago, the Amplify Choice conference took place in Washington, D.C. with the aim of looking at the topic of Charter schools. Participants at the conference took a look at two D.C. schools and I delved into Charter schools in my home state of North Carolina.
A pervasive theme of the conference was the idea that school choice can mean a great number of things. Charter schools, private schools, virtual schools and homeschooling all were mentioned as top choices for parents.
In a nutshell, School Choice is ‘Multiple Choice’. Continue reading

In yesterday’s article, CCSSO President Questions Testing For Homeschoolers, the question was posed by Dr. Atkinson that perhaps homeschoolers and private schooled children should be taking the same tests as public school children.

Yesterday, I reported on the Holshouser Legislators Retreat 2015. This was an invitation only event with various NC educrats, legislators, “non-profits” and businesses discussing your child’s education future without you – again.

By A.P. Dillon
The NY Times has an article out this week titled, “Home Schooling: More Pupils, Less Regulation”. The article focuses on changes in Pennsylvania, but this is an article that should give everyone pause.

This past November, Germany’s Supreme Court has created criminal charges and penalties for parents who do not send their child to public school. In the case of the Wunderlich’s, the government seized not only their bank account, but their children.
Those of you who followed my updates on the Romeike family and their quest for asylum in the United States due to homeschool persecution in Germany, you need to watch this video from the Homeschool League Defense Association (HSLDA) on the Wunderlich’s. Read their story here.

From my “I told you so” files:
Under a new law proposed this week by Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy’s Sandy Hook Advisory Commission, every homeschooling parent with a child who has been labeled with a behavioral or emotional problem would be forced to submit to a host of strict, burdensome regulations. – Daily Caller
