New Waves of Families Considering Homeschooling

The last few weeks have seen significant legislative action in New York State regarding a variety of issues that impact educational choice for families.  HomeschoolNewYork – Loving Education At Home (LEAH) is a Christian organization that serves to provide information, support and advocacy for families that choose to pursue homeschooling as their due right.  We serve over 2,400 families across New York State – through more than 90 local Chapters – and provide a host of services for member families (see: www.leah.org).  Many parents and students have found that homeschooling is the best path to accomplish their academic and training objectives – and LEAH is committed to advancing the cause of home education and protecting parental rights and freedoms to do so.  We are here to serve families considering home education – so please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
