Our schools have been scientifically designed to prevent over-education from happening. [...] The average American (should be) content with their humble role in life, because they're not tempted to think about any other role.

William Torrey Harris, U.S. Commissioner of Education, 1889

ACCREDITATION AS REGULATION - OUR FUTURE?
Not if you defend the non-accredited Route to Learning ... and College


Are you a traditional home educator whose children learn at home? Are you an unschooler? Do you use an eclectic approach to curriculum? Are you not accredited?


Currently, the Board of Regents permits public colleges in GA to evaluate your students for regular freshman enrollment (but not joint enrollment) by evidence other than accredited high school transcript. We must preserve an alternative, appropriate admissions path and work for its equity.


If not, then what other dominos fall?

Problems With Local School Officials & Declaration of Intent Forms

A Short History of Home Education in Georgia
Being Aware of Our History May be the Key to Preserving Our Freedom.



Did You Know...
That school districts all over Georgia are breaking the law by their use of Declaration of Intent forms that do not comply with our current Georgia code? Download HEIR’s forms to use instead. Our Declaration of Intent requests only the information required by our home study law, O.C.G.A. 20-2-690. Our monthly attendance forms are easier to use than others because they’re forms you can save and complete on your computer and print out month by month.

That compulsory attendance age has been effectively raised to 18 in Georgia (if your students want to drive) by legislation most home educators never even noticed? Did you know it was "homeschool-friendly" legislators trying to improve Georgia school attendance who authored the bill?


That the current modus operandi for encroaching on homeschool freedom is through Department of Education, Department of Motor Vehicles, and local school district policy rather than legislation?


That HEIR is the statewide homeschool organization in Georgia that operates fully as an all-volunteer organization composed of caring homeschool parents who donate their time and resources to HEIR? Read more about HEIR, its Mission and Vision and the work it does for Georgia home educators.


That HEIR is the statewide homeschool organization in Georgia whose volunteers monitor the Georgia General Assembly from start to finish every year, that networks with legislators and policymakers throughout the state to protect homeschool freedom in Georgia?


That founding members of HEIR were among the first to alert citizens about HB 586, a bill that would have made it nearly impossible for most of you to homeschool in Georgia?


That you can support the work of HEIR and join us in protecting homeschool freedom with or without paying dues. All our work, all our information, and all our materials you can use are absolutely free.


Please consider joining us in protecting homeschool freedom in this state. If you have questions about HEIR or need further information, please contact us.
