I am blogging today from the vendor room of the Christian Home Educators of Ohio annual convention, in downtown Columbus at Veterans Memorial Auditorium. Traffic is light but steady on this early Friday afternoon.
I am here not because I am a home educating parent (which I am), but because I am doing a favor for a friend. I will be broadcasting a live, 3 hour radio program from 3-6 p.m. on AM 880 WRFD radio, filling in for regular host Bob Burney on his drivetime program on this Salem Radio affiliate. Bob’s wife Joy is undergoing surgery today, so please keep them in prayer.
I will be interviewing a number of home education experts, speakers and analysts, as well as taking calls from listeners. It is always a great time to be among so many people taking personal responsibility for the education of their own children, without government assistance or funding, while still paying for “public” education through their taxes and dealing with governmental requirements, not to mention the well-meaning but generally uninformed critiques of their choices by family and friends.
Tune in and learn why home education is an exercise in liberty and freedom, for now and for our future.
