Florida is one of the states where you are allowed to home school your children and not only that but through years of lobbying our State House and Congress we have made extremely positive improvements in parents rights to home school their children and in the legal protection to do so. There was a time when parents would go to jail if they did not entrust their children to a public school system.
Saturday September 15, 2007 at Okeeheelee Park in West Palm Beach adjacent to Wellington Florida PEC celebrated 25 years with a country style picnic at the Alligator Pavilion. It was still quite warm this time of year but we had fun getting together. The kids spent most of the time in organized relays or just free style playing on the popular playground areas next to the pavilion. The money for the food was raised by selling tickets for $3 per person. No tax dollars go to homeschooling families. In fact, all home school families pay taxes for public schools in their property tax bills here in Florida. The homeschool organizations do not want tax benefits for homeschooling because that would lead to state controls over homeschools.
We had over 200 people show up for this event that starting 25 years ago with two moms sitting at a kitchen table trying to decide how they were going to educate their children at home. We have come a long way from hiding out and not going outside during school hours. I have homeschooled 5 children all the way from K to completion of high school and now we are home schooling our last child who is now 5 years old.
