September 2016 AHEA Update

The AHEA board is pleased to announce that longtime AHEA member and home educating mom Kristine Buchholtz has agreed to serve as the new editor of HOME Matters.

Kristine and her husband have home schooled their five children for the past eighteen years, with their oldest three having moved on to postsecondary studies after having graduated from parent-directed high school programs.
They continue to home educate their two youngest children.

AHEA would also like to welcome Korien Sampson as our new Executive Assistant.
Many people will recognize Korien as AHEA's Convention Director - a position she still capably holds!

Korien is a veteran Home schooling mom of four children.
She likes to travel, camp and swim. Korien volunteered for AHEA often in the past and has run a successful Home School Convention for AHEA for the past 3 years.

Welcome Kristine and Korien to the AHEA Team!

AHEA would also like to thank Angeline Bowman for all her work over several years on behalf of the home educators of Alberta. Angeline volunteered under her mother, Winona Bowman, while her mother held several paid positions and Angeline has filled those positions for the past year and half. Thank you, Angeline.
------
AHEA is aware that Education Unlimited continues to publish negative and misleading comments about AHEA.
AHEA acknowledges that Education Unlimited has made valuable contributions to home education in Alberta and considers the families of Education Unlimited to be a valuable part of Alberta’s home educating community.
If Education Unlimited wishes to continue to pay AHEA to advertise in our magazine and conference guide, Education Unlimited continues to be welcome to do so in spite of those Education Unlimited comments.
AHEA will continue to advocate for the rights of home educators and parents, as we always have.

-----

Finally, AHEA continues to monitor several situations involving home education administrations and their relationship with the Alberta government and/or Alberta bureaucrats.
At this point, there is nothing firm to report although we hope some situations will soon be resolved.
Should political action be required from our members, we will communicate with everyone quickly and clearly.
Please stay tuned.

Thank you,
The AHEA Board
