Twenty-first Century Homeschooling: What Leaders Need to Know

Homeschool demographics are changing and so are homeschool practices. The digital age and technology have lowered the barriers, contributing to the worldwide expansion of homeschooling. But this century's homeschoolers have different motivations, expectations and needs. This session will explore these changes and equip you with the knowledge and resources that will help you steer your organization through these changing waters.

They Look to You

Like it or not, when you’re a homeschool leader, people watch you. Younger moms look to you for guidance and a pattern to follow. They want to be reminded that the sacrifices they make now are worth it, that the young children who are dependent on them will grow up and be okay and that the dark days of monotonous toiling will be replaced by sunny days of success. There are husbands of homeschooling moms who are skeptical of the whole homeschooling idea, who need to see positive examples and be encouraged to be their wife’s knight in shining armor.

Understanding DNPE

This workshop is designed to provide an overview of NC statutory requirements for homeschools to operate in North Carolina. It will be both informative and engaging with active audience participation. By the end of the workshop, participants will have a better understanding of DNPE with any myths dispelled.

Managing Change

Change is one of the most frequent causes of conflict, whether in the home, office, church or on a homeschool board. This workshop will provide a strategy for managing change in a way that builds unity and inspires entire groups to see every transition in life as an opportunity to grow in character and become more useful to God.

Homeschooling and Parental Rights—Freedom under Fire

Parental rights and religious freedom have been the two foundations to establish a constitutional right for parents to teach their children at home. The U.S. Supreme Court some years back weakened the free exercise of religion claim as a foundation for homeschooling so that in order for homeschoolers to claim a fundamental right to homeschool, they must be able to combine the free exercise right with the parental rights claim. In other words, both rights have to co-exist.
