One of CHEWV’s most important areas of ministry is in the legislative arena.  Active involvement in monitoring legislation, promoting favorable legislation concerning homeschool related issues, and building relationships is a year-round undertaking.  Instrumental  to our legislative efforts is John Carey, our legislative liaison.  John’s website, Heritage Communications of WV, provides a variety of quality materials and links to make understanding public policy initiatives simpler.

To keep our members and friends aware of issues affecting them, CHEWV sends periodic legislative emails and alerts to all who subscribe to our mailing list.  Our goal is to keep all WV home educators informed about current and pending issues.

Below is a link to the Heritage website where you will find contact information for your legislators and representatives.

CHEWV is a proud supporter of NHERI – the National Home Education Research Institute. NHERI conducts and collects research about homeschooling (home-based education, home schooling), and publishes the research journal called the Home School Researcher. The institute has hundreds of research works documented and catalogued on home schooling. Simply put, NHERI specializes in homeschool research. NHERI created the study, “Homeschooling in WV”. Below is a link to better acquaint you with the important work of NHERI. We also have a link to the study, “Homeschooling in WV” which can be viewed or downloaded for your use.
