NEW Parent Advocate & Consultant
As a veteran home educator and an educational entrepreneur, I knew I had found an ally when I stumbled upon the work of Jamie Buckland. The ongoing debates between traditional homeschoolers and school choice advocates were highlighting the lack of understanding regarding home education and special needs. For over a year, I was reaching out to Jamie as a mentor, and she kept talking about organizing a group to support moms and advocates. My pestering paid off! Jamie has connected me to other champions in the space, and I am now actively working alongside them to discuss potential policy changes. I see the Alliance becoming the space for moms and dads who are passionate about their children’s futures, educated on policy and civics, and are willing to do the work to see K-12 education transformed.
