CT State Representative Arthur O'Neill Kicks Off Homeschool Forums

This from Rep. O'Neill's press release:

KILLINGLY CT - State Representative Arthur O'Neill (R-Southbury) will be conducting an informational forum on home-schooling on Thursday, August 30th, at 10:00 a.m. at the Killingly Public Library Community Room (25 Westcott Rd., Danielson, just off Exit 92 on 395).

The forum is intended to be the first of a series to be held around the state for home-schoolers to get information about home-schooling and interested parents and families to discuss the climate of home-schooling in Connecticut.

"These forums are intended to be informational and helpful to those who are currently home-schooling or those who are seriously considering home-schooling their children," said Representative O'Neill. "It is an opportunity to voice concerns, give support to other home-schoolers, and discuss relieving the many burdens, legal and otherwise, on those who choose to educate their own children at home."


NHELD (National Home Education Legal Defense) and local homeschool groups are working together with Rep. O'Neill on this effort and these forums should prove to be fun, thought provoking and very worthwhile. If you live in CT - please try to attend. Subsequent forums' dates and times and details will be posted.
