Homeschool Freedom

We believe homeschooling — personalized, parent-directed, privately-funded and free from regulation — gives children the freedom to flourish academically, emotionally, and socially within the nurturing environment of home and family. We've been promoting and protecting homeschool freedom since 1983.

Parental Rights

Our campaign exists to secure a constitutional amendment that defends the rights of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children. At, we believe that no government, regardless of how well-intentioned it might be, can replace the love and nurture of a parent in the life of a child. It’s a relationship worth protecting.
