Home Schooling on Fox News

Yesterday Fox News did a national story on “The Evolution of Home Schooling” focusing on home schooling in Texas. The story mentioned that Texas leads the country in home schooling and that well over a million students across the nation are taught at home.

My friend Anne Gebhart and her children were interviewed in Dallas for the story. Anne and her husband Dave head up HEART, the regional home school organization for North Texas, and have been leaders for well over a decade. Dave is also on the Advisory Committee of the Texas Home School Coalition.

The news piece pointed out that parents are free to homeschool in Texas without state oversight or regulation. In fact, Texas is perhaps the most free homeschool state in the country, and the reason for that is that Texas homeschool parents quickly respond any time there is an attempt to take away this freedom. THSC continues to monitor legislation, state agencies and school districts to make sure that they respect the rights of home schoolers in Texas.

As we’ve done in the past, we’ll sound the alarm whenever an attempt is made to pass legislation that would in any way erode homeschool freedom in Texas, and I know that Texas home schoolers will respond as they have in the past. Texas is a great place to live, and Texas home schoolers are the BEST!

    I feel so blessed to be able to homeschool my children here in Texas. Just like we owe our troops for our freedom, we owe those parents who fought in the early 80's for homeschool rights!

    Wow, it took some doing, but i finally may have found out a way to contact / communicate w/ "right in texas". I've followed this blog for some time, it is GREAT, but only just now started one of my own: http://wwwstopdruggingofthedisabled.blogspot.com

    A newbie to making a blog (but NOT to the dangers of over-medicating the disabled, the elderly and children — my HOT BUTTON~!), i'd appreciate any comments / suggestions on HOW i can make my blogsite BETTER~! Thanks.

    I cannot not but feel if we as a culture of freeman and freewome will stay free from mem who's view is to enslave all those who he thinks are less then him. WE THE PEOPLE ARE FREE IN THIS NATION BECAUSE IT WAS PAID FOR BY THE DECISION'S MADE TO FIGHT AGAINST A CULTURE OF ANTI-FAMILY MENTALITY WHO HAVE NOT GONE AWAY JUST BECAUSE THEY LOST A BATTLE YESTERDAY OR IN THE PAST. THEY AN PEOPLE LIKE THEM ARE ALIVE AND WELL DOING THEIR BUSINESS BEHIND CLOSED DOES OF GOVERNMENT AND THAT IS WHY WE AS A PEOPLE CANNOT LET DOWN OUR WATCH AS LONG AS THEIR IS A LEGISLATURE IN SESSION .
