Legislative Panel – Moderator
Stay informed! Every year new attempts are made at the Indiana Statehouse to limit our freedom to home educate our children. Legislation is regularly introduced to lower the compulsory school age, to regulate homeschooling through standardized testing and curriculum approval, to require homeschoolers to register, to implement the Common Core Standards, and to collect data from homeschoolers for state and national databases. Our freedoms are attacked as attempts are made to erode our parental rights and redefine marriage and family. Come and hear the discussion and have your questions answered by a panel of homeschooling parents who diligently serve as representatives, senators, and advocates to protect homeschooling freedoms at the Indiana Statehouse.
