Record crowd at Homeschool Capitol Day

Organizers of the annual Oklahoma Home Educators' Capitol Day event are reporting that over 2,600 homeschoolers attended activities today inside the capitol building in Oklahoma City. That figure is 600 higher than last year, which was the previous record.

Homeschool families from all across the state came to greet their legislators, and give a public face to homeschooling, in addition to learning about the legislative process, and lobbying for or against homeschool-related legislation.

Gov. Mary Fallin addressed the crowd in the morning, and relayed that she has declared February 6-10th as Oklahoma Homeschool Week. You can view her proclamation at this link.
