Resist the urge to fund public schools and embrace the freedom of home learning

Public schools are marketing "free" educational programs in an attempt to lure homeschoolers back onto the rolls. Consider carefully the true cost of these programs.

Resist the urge to fund public schools and embrace the freedom of home learning We all pay taxes that support the “free” system of schools in our states. But facing massive drops in enrollments, public schools are marketing a new kind of “free” educational program: homeschooling.

Why is homeschooling so free in Idaho? 😎
The high test scores* of Idaho’s private home educators were fundamental to the passage of Idaho’s homeschool law in 2009! (*Test scores are presented to legislators as an anonymous group compilation in chart form; no personal data is ever revealed.)

We invite you to join fellow homeschoolers in testing today, not only for your own information, but to continue to safeguard our freedoms! #homeschoolfreedom #HomeschoolStrong 💪homeschoolidaho.org/testing

Congratulations, Dr. Farris! #HomeschoolStrong

Our son, Joe—or I should say, Dr. Joseph Farris—successfully defended his PhD dissertation today at the University of Notre Dame. His degree was focused on biogenetics.

His thesis was entitled: Genotype-Phenotype Predictions in Rare Diseases: The Relationship Between Glycine Decarboxylase Mutations and Non-Ketotic Hyperglycinemia Severity.

I can pronounce almost all the words in his title and understand over half of them.

Congratulations to Joe. We are so proud of him.

His mother—who taught him from K-12–should also take a bow.

So much for the old attack on homeschooling that our kids will never succeed especially in the hard sciences.

Joe will be starting as a tenure track professor at Saginaw Valley State University this fall. He will be teaching Genetics.

Joe and his gorgeous wife, Mercy, and their adorable son, Daniel, are pictured below.

Congratulations!!!!!!!🎉🎊🎈

🤔 Why test?!

Homeschool Idaho serves homeschoolers in many ways! Perhaps the most important is protecting homeschool freedom. Our private testing is a 🗝 key tool in our toolshed, as it allows us to show legislators that state oversight and state funding are not needed to produce academic success!

With our Iowa testing service, your student's data and scores are completely private, for you to use as you wish. These scores can be used to qualify for certain dual-enrollment requirements, honors recognition in our homeschool graduation ceremony, or simply as part of your personal record of your student's progress. At our annual Legislative "Pie" Day, we show a chart of compiled test scores, comparing home educated students to publicly schooled students nationwide.

Test dates are still available through July 30 for the 2021 testing window! Please visit homeschoolidaho.org/testing and help us protect homeschool freedom today!
