Is the right to choose homeschooling for your child secure?

Some child's rights advocates, like Harvard Law Professor Elizabeth Bartholet, believe that homeschoolers are a threat to the rights that state governments (not parents) have in order to ensure a child's right to an education and to personal well-being.


Participants at the 2021 Harvard Homeschool Conference in June debated the need for further regulation of homeschooling, and whether or not parents are fit to teach their own. Watch the sessions


Homeschool leaders presented clear facts during the debate that support the role of parents in the education and upbringing of children. Read HSLDA's detailed report on the event.
