Rochester hosts Home Educators Conference

Posted:

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Rochester was host to the Minnesota Association of Christian Home Educators Conference Friday.

The organization represents nearly 3,000 thousand families in the state. The yearly conference rotates between St. Paul, Duluth and Rochester.

Normally about 5,000 people attend the event, but organizers anticipated a bit fewer due to weather. It is the biggest regional Home Education Conference.

Families got a chance to see curriculum supplies and resources. They could make purchases and learn about how to begin homeschooling, how it works through high school, and teaching special needs children.

Attendees were also able to speak to curriculum designers, and this year a special speaker gave a presentation. He was a native of Germany, where homeschooling is illegal. He'll be working with the Minnesota legislature to help change the law.
