An invitation from the President of AHEA to our 2014 convention:

I am obviously a man of strong convictions, and I have laid out some of those convictions clearly in my editorials in the past 2 issues of Home Matters magazine.

As stated in the magazine, these are my opinions and not those necessarily held by the board of even AHEA as a whole.I have attempted to make that clear.

I firmly believe that parents have the God given authority to home educate, and this right is recognized by Section 32 of Alberta's Education Act:

  1. A parent has the prior right to choose the kind of education

that shall be provided to the parent’s child, and as a partner in

education, has the responsibility to

(a) act as the primary guide and decision-maker with respect to

the child’s education,

The specifics of how each parent home educates areup to that parent or set of parents.

Home education that is parent-directed and parent-delivered, as outlined in the Home Education Regulation,can take many forms.

AHEA represents home educators regardless of how they choose to home educate.

So that means you don't have to agree with me or with AHEA. There will always be differing opinions on everything from what curricula to use, to what methodology and philosophy to follow. That is the beauty of AHEA, we are here for everyone, and everyone has the God given right to their opinion. We don’t have to agree on everything and sometimes we will have to agree to disagree.

At our convention you will hear a variety ofstrong convictions from a variety of speakers, people who are not afraid to speak up for what they believe in.
You mayagree with some,be surprised or even challenged by others,and some you won’t agree with. No matter what background you come from,you will be welcomed and supported in your role as a parent and as a home educator.

Please come and join us April 11th and 12th in Red Deer.

I guarantee, you will be among friends…

Chris Rogers,

President, AHEA
