Homeschool Consideration and school safety
December 21, 2012, Melbourne, FL — The FPEA is extremely saddened by the news of the recent school shootings in Connecticut. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims and to all others affected. While we mourn the loss of so many children and teachers, we begin to turn our attention to the issue of school safety.
Tragedies of this nature raise the question in every parent’s mind, “Are my children safe in their current school?” Oftentimes at this point, parents begin to consider whether home education is a viable option to ensure the safety of their children. As parents consider their options, the FPEA supports their freedom to educate their children at home. In this process, though, the FPEA encourages parents not to make the decision to home-educate impulsively.
To make an informed decision, get the facts about homeschooling and receive numerous resources by visiting www.fpea.com. The information there will help parents decide what is best for their children.
