Right in Texas
Opinions on Things Texas and Conservative (Including Home Education)
Tim Lambert, president of the Texas Home School Coalition (the state support organization since 1986), has been involved in home school leadership in Texas since 1984. Tim began writing his blog, Right in Texas, in 2008.
For three years Tim was president of the local support group that he and his wife Lyndsay helped start in 1984. During that time, Tim was asked to serve on the advisory board of the Texas Home School Coalition. In 1990 he was asked to take over the reins of THSC, and in 1995 he began to work full-time for the organization.
He and his wife Lyndsay taught their four now-grown children at home for 16 years, graduating the last two in 2000. The Lamberts, while no longer homeschooling, are all deeply committed to the home school community and to protecting each parent’s right to direct the education and upbringing of their children in the great state of Texas. Tim continues to dedicate his life to this cause.
Tim holds a BA in political science from Texas Tech University and is active in the political arena, having served eight years as Republican national committeeman for Texas. As the head of THSC, the state organization for the leading home school state in the country, Tim is recognized as an authority on home education issues in Texas. In this capacity, he has testified before numerous Texas legislative committees on issues related to home schooling. He often deals with state government agencies, including the Texas Education Agency and Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, on home education issues and has served as an expert witness on home education in a number of court cases. He has often addressed such conferences as the Texas Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers on the topic.
