We are excited to tell you about another one of our Featured Workshop Speakers. Mr. Barry Peters has been an extremely popular convention speaker at nearly every one of CHOIS’ 16 conventions. President of the Idaho Coalition of Home Educators, and Chief Legal Counsel for both ICHE and CHOIS, Mr. Peters brings our convention attendees an annual legal update on the challenges that Idaho Home Educators face. His dry wit and unique speaking style delight standing-room-only crowds, year after year. His workshop this year is entitled: Race to the Bottom: Tyranny of the Common Core. If you have any questions about what the Common Core is, and how it will effect homeschoolers, you will want to attend this workshop! His column, Legislative News, appears in nearly every issue of the CHOIS Connection. Mr. Peters’ practices law in Eagle, Idaho specializing in the areas of real estate, estate planning and business law. He and his wife successfully completed homeschooling their daughters.
