Convention 2018: Embrace the Unexpected

About the 2018 AHEA Convention

 

AHEA is Western Canada’s largest home education convention. We bring in the largest variety of speakers and vendors in all of Canada. We welcome all parents who are interested in home education and we are not exclusionary. Our goal is to simply offer the widest variety of resources to parents. We’ve been doing this for over 30 years. Come join us and check out home education at our annual convention in April, 2018 in Red Deer.

Be concerned! Be very concerned!

Hi all,

I haven't been blogging lately in an attempt to have Patty Marler's information top and foremost on the AHEA Home Page.  BUT I wanted to encourage you to be very concerned about Bill 2 and to do something!  There is only a short while before it is law.  CONTINUE to pray for God to change hearts of those in government, but as well, write, email or phone your MLA (and other MLA's in Alberta) - use the information on the Home page of the AHEA website and do something NOW. 

Please share this with friends, family and more - I know people who are sending the information to their entire email address books....  Bill 2 will affect Christian, Catholic, and Charter Schools - as well, as Home Educating families.  Perhaps you have never done anything like this before.  Go to the Political Update page (button above) or to the Home Page (button on left top) - print off a couple of sheets - read information with your children - highlight the relevant points - reread so you feel confident and then DO something.  Once a bill is law - it is harder to change.  Do something NOW.  This will afftect our children and our grandchildren - if we don't do something now.

AND it sounds like there might be another rally called for Monday.  Watch for that information and attend with your family.  There needs to be a huge gathering.

MLA's confirm that Concerns Regarding Parental Freedom in Education are Valid

Our concerns regarding parental rights in the education of our children have proven valid.  MLA’s in the legislature made this very evident with their discussion and comments last night in the legislature (March 14, 2012).  Ms. Laurie Blakeman made several comments regarding parents' rights in education.  The Alberta Hansard has not yet been printed from the evening debate so I cannot quote directly, though I caught most of the words as they were stated. (exact wording will be quoted once the Hansard on the evening session is posted)  I noted these as I was surprised how openly our very concerns were stated in the legislature.

Ms. Blakeman:  (regarding education)  Who gets to make the final decision?  Outside of Education the parent has the right. When it comes to public education, we legislators make the policy that gives forth those decisions.  The citizenry makes the decision so we have a consistent standard.

Previously in the day the following comments were made as quoted from the Alberta Hansard.
