HOMESCHOOL ALUMNI and TEENS…

We’d love to have you there to offer a friendly greeting to legislators and discuss how homeschooling prepared you for success, or enabled you the freedom to pursue your interests. You do not need to stay for the whole breakfast buffet, any time is appreciated. We also welcome any displays or performances that demonstrate: Homeschooling Works!! This is our time to shine.

 

If you have a field trip, project, or co-op event you would like to share, please reserve space by emailing with a description of your display no later than Monday, January 28. Thank you!


CALLING ALL CONNECTICUT HOMESCHOOLED GRADUATES & PARENTS OF HOME GRADS
We need your help please…

DOING WHAT?  Creating a“Homeschooling Works!” display at the 2019 Connecticut Home Educators Capitol Day - February 5th at the State Capitol.


WHY?  To show CT legislators that for the past 30+ years, hundreds of homeschooling families have successfully graduated accomplished, productive, thriving adults–WITHOUT ANY GOVERNMENT OVERSIGHT.  No need to change that now! You are the best proof that homeschooling works in the “real world”.

 

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?  Anyone who was homeschooled in Connecticut (for the majority of your education - you do NOT need to currently live in CT) and who wants to help keep homeschooling parent-directed and free from government control.

APPOINTMENT WITH YOUR LEGISLATOR!
Legislators are Usually Eager to Meet Their Constituents…

Please call to see if your representative is available to meet you in Capitol Room 310 for a breakfast buffet from 9am to 11am. Click “Tips for Meeting with Your Legislator“ to find their number and conversation tips. If they are not available for breakfast, ask if they can meet you in their office later that day, or in your home town on another day. They are busy, but being your representative is their job and most are very willing to set up a time to meet with their constituents. 


 

TEACH -CT would like to thank New England Flare catering and Classical Conversations for their generous financial support of CT Home Educators Capitol Day.
