Secular Homeschoolers OK

405-216-4099
Geographic Area Serving: State of Oklahoma
Description: We are an inclusive, secular group for homeschoolers in OK. The idea is to share resources, techniques and other information as well as camaraderie amongst other families engaged in home education. We are all about homeschooling, not religion or politics. We all have our own views and beliefs and reasons for homeschooling. The common thread here is that we are all educating our own children at home for a plethora of reasons. This does not mean that we are not individually interested in religion, politics, etc. but that we are here for the common purpose of homeschooling our kids.
Requirements: We are here to offer insight, resources, and support to homeschooling families. Please keep discussion, posts, etc. to the ideals of homeschooling and respect all members of this group. This is not the forum for religious or political content. We are homeschoolers who wish to homeschool secularly and as such, please keep religion and politics out of the discussion and off the list. Please share resources, ideas, activities/events, etc. that will help others in this endeavor. Also, if you have questions, concerns, BURNOUT, please feel free to ask or share without fear of reprisal. We are here to help!
Benefits: We have many links already listed and are always trying to add more that are pertinent in our links section. SecularHS strives to put together events/activities and we hope to be able to do more in the future. Members are welcome and encouraged to plan group events as well.
