Welcome to the debut issue of The Home Education Foundation’s monthly e-newsletter. Several home educators have volunteered to make this newsletter a reality in order to share with you the most up-to-date news and information important to home educators in Florida.
We will highlight new and pending legislation, as well as vital information and opportunities, to help parents make the best choices and plans to home educate their children. We are disheartened when we hear of families whose children miss out on scholarships, athletic and college opportunities because they are unaware of rules or choices available to them. We hope this newsletter will reach most of the 50,000 Florida families that home educate their children with this vital information.
Our newsletter will be able to bring you timely and accurate information and insights for home educators because HEF’s founder and president, Brenda Dickinson, is at the very heart of home education in Florida. Brenda Dickinson is not just the first to know about changes and challenges to home educators. HEF is most often the reason behind the positive changes or is leading the charge to challenge or fend off legislation and other changes that might adversely affect Florida home educators.
Thanks to the continuing efforts of The Home Education Foundation, Florida parents have more options, more freedoms and perhaps more educational choices than any other parents in the nation.
You can count on The Home Education Foundation Newsletter to keep you up-to-date and informed on the latest news and opportunities to make the most of educating your children at home. We hope you’ll forward and share this e-newsletter with every Florida home educator you know.
