We developed a program called Advocacy from Home – and yes, you can advocate from home, with your kids!
Advocacy from Home is a program by FPM that equips private homeschooling families so that they can engage with their elected representatives locally in an effective way.
This is accomplished through online video training, working with FPM, and your in-person or virtual meetings, phone calls, or letters to your state legislators as you deliver the Homeschooling Information packet to them.
Legislators are much more likely to listen to and care about someone they represent. They will work to please someone who will be in a position to vote for (or against) them in the next election.
It is important that each state legislator be met by somebody who lives in their district because that is who they represent and that is who they are working to please when they are at their district office.
What is the Homeschooling Information packet?
The Homeschooling Information packet, aka the “Legislator Packet,” is a compilation of materials that homeschooling parents, families, or groups can give to their legislators to inform them about private homeschooling. It is prepared by Private & Home Educators of California, a program of FPM.
What’s in the packet?
- Homeschooling in California: Legal Requirements
- Why We Don’t Need New Home-school Legislation
- NHERI: Home Education Reason and Research
- NHERI: The Relationship Between the Degree of State Regulation of Homeschooling and the Abuse of Homeschool Children (Students)
- NHERI: Homeschool SAT Scores for 2014 Higher Than National Average
