Christian Home Educators of Kentucky (CHEK) is a statewide homeschooling educational and informational organization established to assist families who choose to educate their children according to the dictates of their conscience and their fundamental rights as parents. CHEK's goal is to better equip home schoolers with the necessary skills, tools, and information to successfully fulfill their convictions and the God-mandated responsibility to train and educate their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

CHEK and many of you, as constituents, have been assured that HB 574 will not move out of committee, long sigh of relief.....
BUT, we also have been told this will be discussed in the legislative interim.
Yes, the Chair of the Education Committee and several Representatives have responded with, "This bill is dead, but there will be discussion during interim", or they responded with questions asking their constituents, "What would be acceptable oversight?".
CHEK will be hosting HSLDA Attorney, TJ Schmidt, tomorrow on our Facebook page, Tuesday, March 13 at 2:30 EST to present, What We Need to Learn from HB574. Attorney Schmidt will review the bill and share direct ways we can communicate with our representatives or even our fellow citizens, when they suggest more oversight and less freedom!
Some of you do not have Facebook accounts; ask a friend if you can visit for the afternoon and watch it together. We challenge those of you, with Facebook accounts, to invite a friend over to watch it with you! The video will be available on the CHEK Facebook page for later viewing, as we know this time may not be convenient for everyone.
We are in a crucial time of seeing many states trying to strip the freedoms of home educators. If you have friends in the following states, be sure they know about these bills!
Hawaii- SB2323 was killed, but is still to be discussed
CHEK thanks our supporting members, it is because of you we are able to remain active in this Commonwealth!
