ICHE Legislative Days, especially Cherry Pie Day, is a proactive effort to remind our legislators--as well as our governor--that homeschoolers are very, very politically active, and we zealously protect our hard-fought-for homeschooling rights. It is a worthwhile investment in our children’s and grandchildren’s lives, as we remember that is much easier to keep our liberties than regain them once they are lost.

The Way Out: Special Forum on Education Choice
April 25 @ 9:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Parents must be aware that if they hope to protect their children against intellectual dumbing down as well as the rampant cultural-moral, spiritual subversion, then sending them to government schools is no longer an option. Only 38 percent of Illinois public school students meet proficiency expectations in English Language Arts, only 32 percent of students meet proficiency expectations in math. This despite the fact that taxpayers pay $16,925 per student per year. For that kind of investment, the vast majority of students should not only be meeting proficiency expectations but exceeding them. Additionally, students are increasingly being taught morally corrupting messages that undermine traditional Judeo-Christian principles.
Visionary Marriage Conference
April 26 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
God has a mission for you as a husband and wife. Come and discover it. In this conference, married and engaged couples will be inspired to embrace a compelling, Bible driven mission for their lives together; forgive and work through conflict; partner together to build faith and character in their children and build a multi-generational legacy for Christ and His Kingdom.
