"She was a miracle baby that made her entrance into the world a bit early. BR is smart, beautiful, and creative but she has some health and developmental challenges ...her primary diagnosis was a speech disorder called childhood apraxia of speech; she communicated mostly with American Sign Language...It took some time and a lot of phone calls to advocate for our daughter, and we had to remind people that a Free Appropriate Public Education was her right, regardless of diagnosis.

“You absolutely can homeschool your child. From the second they’re born, you’re teaching them. You know your child better than anyone else in this world; what their interests and levels are and how they going to learn. Trust yourself! Stop, breathe, and spend time with your child. Don’t get overwhelmed with the noise of everyone telling you what’s best for them - you know what’s best. It will all come to you naturally, and you’ll find a way to integrate learning to into everyday life. My best piece of advice is - do not try and replicate a strict school environment. You’ve chosen to homeschool for a reason, make it your own."
"As a military family, we feel compelled to serve so that everyone may have the gift of freedom. My husband puts his life on the line to protect it, while my daughter and I do everything we can to support him. We take words like “choice” and “freedom” very seriously, and believe in education options for all learners. "

PaFEC joins, supports, and mobilizes parents, guardians, students, and families in the pursuit of Pennsylvania education choice advocacy. We are not anti-district; we are pro-school choice. We advocate for individual education options for our children by highlighting stories via social media and public forums, reaching out to stakeholders, and our consistent plea of the legislature that expansion of education choice programs in Pennsylvania be continued. Gathered together as one bold voice via education, assistance, inspiration, and enlightenment, we will be victorious in our effort.
What we do today will champion education choice rights for our children’s futures.
