This Tuesday, Christian Home Educators of Colorado had the privilege of meeting with Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos as a part of her Rethink School national tour.
It was a huge success.
DeVos had reached out to CHEC as the representation of homeschooling in Colorado with the desire to connect with Colorado’s burgeoning homeschool movement. As the state homeschool organization, CHEC was able to put a positive face on homeschooling, facilitating interaction with homeschool families from across Colorado.
Over a dinner of BBQ ribs, DeVos interacted with several representative homeschool families who gathered from around the state. DeVos was not only receptive, she was overtly supportive of the homeschooling movement.

We are praising God for placing a leader so supportive of homeschooling as Secretary of Education, and we look forward to her continued support from this decisive office.
