To all Alberta home educators:
The auditors of Alberta Education - through their decisions on 'allowable funding' - are continuing in their efforts to change the definitions of what home education is and what it isn't.
That defining of terms is the right of parents.
You may have heard news on financial 'clawbacks' from your school authority.
AHEA is aware of this situation and is working with these school authorities to protect parental rights and freedoms, including the parental right to decide what resources, methods, and activities will best achieve the educational outcomes chosen by each parent.
At this time, we would ask all home educating parents to stay in touch with their school authority for more detail and to monitor this website should political action be required.
