Who Owns Your Children? Home Education in an Authoritarian Age

Wednesday, May 13th, 2020 | 2pm-5pm

Is home education “dangerous”? A Harvard Law School professor—calling parents “authoritarian” and organizing a private “Summit” of educational elites to discuss the threats of homeschooling—certainly thinks so.

Is it dangerous for government to usurp parental authority? Join us as we assemble several renowned speakers on the frontline of this issue to discuss the threats, challenges, and opportunities for Home Education in a climate of suspicion and misinformation.

“The child is not the mere creature of the State; those who nurture him and direct his destiny have the right, coupled with the high duty, to recognize and prepare him for additional obligations.”

—US Supreme Court, Pierce v. Society of Sisters, 1925
