Protecting and Promoting Private Home Education in Michigan, INCH works in many ways! It is through your association with us that allows us to better support more home school families. We have many member benefits designed especially for you.
BEFORE you join INCH, might we suggest you first pay the fees required by your local homeschool support group. These are the people closest to you, working hard to provide both opportunity and community for those who have chosen to keep their children home in your local area.
AFTER you join INCH, please join HSLDA- the Home School Legal Defense Association. They are the national organization that fights both locally and nationally to preserve our home schooling freedom. They were instrumental in moving Michigan from one of the most restrictive states to one of the best states for discipling our children at home.
