Homeschool Legislative Forum Tonight In Branford, CT
State Representative Arthur O'Neill (R-Southbury) in conjunction with NHELD and CT Shoreline Homeschoolers, will be conducting an informational forum on home-schooling at Blackstone Library, September 25th from 7-9:30 pm in Branford, CT.
Locally elected legislative representatives will be attending to listen to the issues which are of concern to their constituents.
The forum is intended to be part of this series of forums being 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, as well as to discuss issues about CT homeschoolers being harassed by school administrators.
"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.
