ACTION NEEDED—RALLY TO SUPPORT FREEDOM FOR HOME EDUCATION!
Join me along with CHEWV, WVHEA and hundreds of others next week for the 26th Annual Day at the Capitol in Charleston and advance freedom for homeschooling in the Mountaineer state!
Two important bills will be heard that day in the education committee and your presence will help support passage of both. At 9:00 a special briefing will be held where Senator Robert Karnes, CHEWV legislative Liaison John Carey, and I will talk about bills you should know about. At 11:00 watch the house in session and meet legislators. At 12:15 we will gather in the Rotunda to hear from other leaders and legislators.
At 2:00, the House Education Committee is expected to hear HB 4175, the homeschool modernization bill, as well as HB 4215 which addresses homeschoolers’ qualification for the Promise scholarship. I plan to be on hand to answer questions. Among the reforms are elimination of the GED requirement for the PROMISE scholarship, revising the 50th percentile standard for academic progress, changes to test administration requirements, removing the plan of instruction, and a one-time Notice of Intent.
The special program for the 26th Annual Day at the Capitol will be full of events you’ll want to be part of. You will hear from members of the House of Delegates and Senate and be able to visit your own delegate or senator. I will be speaking about the importance of freedom in education and why West Virginia parents deserve more freedom.
In addition to the program, you’ll want to visit the West Virginia Capitol’s impressive museum of West Virginia history and culture.
Make plans to join us in Charleston, West Virginia, next Monday, January 25. Events start at 9:00 AM. Register to let us know you are coming and to stay informed.
See you there!
Montani Semper Liberi!
