In spite of inclement weather, OCHEC's 28th Capitol Day was a great success!
Approximately 1,000 homeschoolers walked the halls of our Capitol, met with legislators, delivered cookies, attended the Legislative Impact Session, Town Hall meeting and Rally, and enjoyed a great day of fun.
We had two bills that if passed, would have directly impacted home education. It took a little patience and perseverance, but both were defeated. We need to keep in mind that no matter how good the intent, we must be very careful to not sacrifice our freedom for a perceived right.
If you have not attended Oklahoma Home Educators' Capitol Day before,
you have missed a fun and educational event that has a huge impact on
our effectiveness in lobbying the Oklahoma legislature for home education.
We look forward to seeing you next year on February 11 as you bring your family to your state capitol and be the face of home education to your legislators.
