John Kirkland

John Kirkland is the husband of Lorie and father of Joshua (twenty-five), Lucas (twenty-one), John Mark (seventeen) and Peter (fourteen). He and Lorie have been homeschooling for twenty-one years. Professionally, John is the president of the management consulting firm, JF Kirkland, LLC. John joined the NCHE board of directors in 2007 as secretary and has also served as IT director. John is the newly elected NCHE president. John and Lorie think that many parents may start homeschooling for the great educational opportunities it provides but believe the most important benefit to homeschooling is that it offers the absolute best model and environment for biblical discipleship of our children as taught in Deuteronomy 6.
