Do you fear the “knock at the door” which announces a visit by a social worker or a government official? Or difficult interactions with local school boards? Are you unsure of how to defend what you do at home to your in-laws? In this session Paul Faris, President of HSLDA Canada, discusses the basis on which we can defend homeschooling to our neighbours and family, in discussion groups, in the media, and with the government. Speaking from case history and anecdotal examples, Paul will speak to the experiences of homeschoolers across Canada, and will describe what could be expected in Manitoba.
