Common Core and the Impact on Homeschooling

PEACH is excited to host an informative discussion focusing on the Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI) and its impact on Homeschooling.   Melanie Elsey, legislative liaison for Christian Home Educators of Ohio (CHEO), will be our featured speaker.

Melanie Elsey has a Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education and a Bachelor of Science degree in special education. After serving as a learning disabilities teacher in Ohio’s public school system, she stepped out the classroom to fulltime responsibilities at home. She and her husband, John, home educated their three children (K-12) and are now enjoying grandparenthood. Melanie has served as CHEO’s legislative liaison since 1994. In this capacity she provides analysis of pending legislation and potential changes in policy that would have an impact on home educating families. She and John currently serve on CHEO’s Board of Directors (https://www.cheohome.org/).
