2017 INCH Homeschool Leader Forum…

Please plan on joining us for this important discussion!

Dates:   February 17 – 18, 2017

Where:  Faholo Conference Center, 3000 Mount Hope Road, Grass Lake, MI 49240

The ‘problem’ with education is…….?
Bureaucrats repeatedly discuss this issue at every election. Democrats cry for more money and more government regulation. Republicans have proposed charter schools, common core, ESA’s, public school partnerships, etc…. What’s next?

As homeschooling leaders and parents, we all have some clear ideas and definite opinions on what education should look like. Homeschoolers have been opposing many of the ‘solutions’ proposed by both political parties or simply opting out– but always remaining vigilant, not wanting the bureaucrats to take away our freedom.

INCH was there when Michigan secured the freedom to homeschool in 1996, battling along with HSLDA and others to win the case before the Michigan Supreme Court. Since then INCH has helped to oppose a great deal of bad and misinformed legislation.

Now, INCH invites you to join homeschool leaders from around Michigan for a weekend of discussion about the current state of education in our state, not just identifying the problems, but also helping our legislature to develop solutions that maintain our freedom to home educate without additional regulation, compliance, or constraint.

Will you join us for the discussion and help us to brainstorm ideas that we can take to our friends in the Michigan legislature for consideration and action?

Set aside the weekend of February 17-18, and plan now to join us at Faholo Conference Center in Grass Lake, MI!
