A friend informed me this morning that the governor of Florida issued a proclamation declaring this week Home Education Week. I don't live in Fl, but my hubby's family does. So I found this very interesting.
The governor sited studies that indicate that "children who are educated at home exhibit self-confidence and good citizenship and are fully prepared academically to encounter the challenges of todays society..."
You can read the proclamation in entirety by going to HSLDA site and clicking on the appropriate link.
