HOMESCHOOL ATTORNEY AND AUTHOR TO SPEAK AT HOME EDUCATORS CONFERENCE



Washington, DC—Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) Senior Counsel Chris Klicka will be in Texas, June 2-3, for the 20th Annual Gulf Coast Home Education Conference. Klicka will be the keynote speaker addressing approximately 3,000 homeschoolers from South East Texas.

HSLDA has been at the forefront of the modern homeschool movement. “Fighting for a parents’ right to homeschool has been our mission for over 20 years,” said Klicka.

Homeschooling is entering the mainstream and this is in large part due to the efforts of the HSLDA legal team.

“Homeschool graduates are succeeding in all walks of life and consequently many more families are gaining the confidence to begin homeschooling for themselves,” said Klicka.

Chris Klicka, homeschooling father of seven, is an author of a number of books including the newly released “Heart of Homeschooling: Teaching and Living What Really Matters” and the best-selling book, “Home Schooling: The Right Choice.”

Klicka has worked for the last 18 years at HSLDA defending the rights of homeschooling families before the courts, state legislatures and Congress while handling over 6,000 legal conflicts with social workers, truant officers, superintendents, police and prosecutors.
