Speaker Workshops

A National View of Threats to Homeschool Freedom (TEACH-CT & HSLDA)

TEACH-CT, Connecticut’s Christian homeschool state organization, and HSLDA attorney, Peter Kamakawiwoole (representing CT, MA, RI, and VT), present an update on homeschool freedoms and legislative challenges from around the country.  From registration lists to education savings accounts, attacks and dangers abound and are spreading rapidly as a potential threat to homeschooling in every state. Some come from the enemies of homeschooling, others come in the guise of friendly offers of help from the government. Be informed about national trends and join the conversation about how we can speak in a unified voice to protect our freedoms. We are stronger together.
