8-5-05 - The Texas Home Schooling Coalition is in Texoma this weekend, educating parents on the fastest growing education alternative in America. More and more parents are home schooling their children and Texas leads the nation with almost 300,000 home-schooled students.
Tim Lambert, president of the THSC, says home-schooling gives parents the opportunity to tailor their child's education, but also requires either mom or dad to take on the role as a full time teacher.
Colleges have become more accepting of home-schoolers, using the THSC as a liaison for transcripts and grades.
This weekend's event begins at 9am on Saturday in Valley View at the Cross Timbers Church and is open for anyone interested in home-schooling. If you can't make it to the event, you can get more info at www.thsc.org
