Convention Speaker Change

News release for November 1, 2015

AHEA Announcement to Alberta home educators, the media, and the public:

After carefully considering all of the input from you, Alberta home educators, the Alberta Home Education Association has decided to cancel the speaking engagement of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar for our 2016 convention.

Although early feedback from our members this summer was supportive of having the Duggars come here, recent feedback from our own members points out that their appearance here would not be in the best interests of home educators.

Our members also pointed out that, as the Duggars would have been giving only two talks (of the more than 40 talks available), their presence would have been only a small part of the convention and that the Duggar’s philosophy is not representative of AHEA as a whole.

One of our previously scheduled speakers, Chris Butler of the RCMP, will still be presenting his session on preventing child abuse entitled "Protecting the Gift".

As we have learned, child abuse can happen in any home and is never 'old news'.

Each year, at our convention in April, we invite many speakers in order that Alberta home educators will be uplifted and inspired but also given practical help for their own home education.

We bring in speakers from a variety of home education philosophies and viewpoints and with a wealth of experience and insight.

On April 8th and 9th 2016 in Red Deer, our 30th anniversary convention will feature more than 40 different talks:


The keynote speakers for the 2016 AHEA Convention will be Andrew Pudewa (Institute for Excellence in Writing), Linda Lacour Hobar (The Mystery of History) and John Carpay (Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms).

I hope to see you there.
