GHEC 2012—Success Beyond Measure

GHEC 2012—Success Beyond Measure

200 people from 26 countries and six continents gathered in Berlin, Germany in November 2012 to participate in the first-ever Global Home Education Conference. The event was a success beyond expectations as participants heard from leading German politicians and home education advocates. The event re-energized the beleaguered home education movement in Germany and provided a platform for the release of the Berlin Declaration, which calls on all governments to respect and protect the fundamental right of parents to home educate.

Conference Materials Available to All—Free!

The conference materials are being added to the GHEC2012 website and you are invited to benefit from these materials. Listen to German Parliament Member Patrick Meinhardt, HSLDA Founder Michael Farris, HSLDA Attorney Michael Donnelly, Classical Conversations Founder Leigh Bortins and many, many others. Click here to browse over 30 individual sessions packed full of tremendous value and encouragement.
