Texas GOP State Convention : How to Get Involved and Make a Difference

Ken Paxton and his Pistol Packin' Mama

Part of our hands-on government class this year for homeschool was to be politically active and actually do our part as far as we were able to instead of just going to a voting poll and checking a box. I’m not sure how many public school seniors out there were state delegates this year, but […]

You Can Stop Common Core … and more!

There’s not much in the education spectrum that I hate worse than Common Core. I could write a long post about it, but my blood pressure can’t stand the boil.

I work for THSC during their convention season as a photographer, and I love the organization wholeheartedly. They have been so kind to us and have offered us legal advice in a time of crisis free of charge. I was sad to find out that not even ten percent of homeschoolers in Texas are members […]
