Perhaps you’ve already seen this photo floating around on social media this week.
This is a picture of former Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton signing the law that legalized homeschooling in the spring of 1985.
Standing behind him are the legislation’s sponsors, former Rep. Tim Hutchinson and Sen. Bill Henley, and Mr. Tom Holiman.
Home schooling has come a long way in the past 34 years, and home schoolers certainly are leaving a legacy in our state.
Today men and women who were home schooled as children now work in public policy at the State of Arkansas. They’re business owners and leaders in our communities. They are making an impact everywhere they go.
You and I get to be part of that lasting legacy, and you can help us continue that legacy by giving a generous, tax-deductible to support the work of Family Council and the Education Alliance. Click here to donate right now.
