Meeting: The Legalities of Homeschooling

When ? Monday, September 10th
Time? evening
Where ? Colchester area
Who? We're having a guest speaker: Attorney Deborah G. Stevenson

Why ? Because homeschoolers, both current and prospective, need to be on the same page with the facts. There is a fascinating history to home education in CT that is always a riveting topic for the audience to hear about. Atty. S. is a good speaker, very interesting, and filled with well over 20 years of knowledge.

We'll cover the history, the challenges in the past to retain freedoms, and current issues related to "how to" start homeschooling from a legal perspective. Current issues to be mindful about will also be brought to the table.

This is truly a must attend, rare event. Attorney S. homeschooled her children from birth through high school. Her presentation and passion for homeschool freedom in CT is sincere and a labor of love. There is no fee for this event.

Feel free to bring interested grandparents, who sometimes have questions, too.
