The purpose of the Education Options Expo is to empower parents who want to learn about 21st century educational models that will benefit and respect their child.
The Education Options Expo is an educational forum where parents of PreK12 students meet the world leaders in education and empowered learning. The presentations will cover hot topics like: homeschooling, maker movements, agile learning, computer programming, unschooling, self-directed learning, and threat management.
You will meet other parents similar to you and get a chance to build positive relationships which may benefit your child's life in the short-term and in the long-term.
The Education Revolution is happening everywhere and will emphasize learner-centered learning, as opposed to one-size-fits all education.
Come get your questions answered by educators and leaders who have decades of experience empowering parents and students.

When & Where
David J. Rodriguez
Having 17 years of traditional schooling, including a university degree, Mr. Rodriguez was saddened to realize that his traditional schooling did not properly prepare him for success in the professional world.
He gained experience as an English teacher when he followed his desire to explore the world, moving to South Korea to teach at a private school.
With a background in insurance, biotechnology, and business development, he was intrigued by the need for empowered leadership in the educational world. His curiousity led him to inquire into the root causes of the failure of traditional schooling, as well as solutions to the problem. Understand that forcing people to do something against their will is immoral, he began searching for learning models that respect children and provide them a positive learning environment.
His research led to distinct educational solutions, which value and empower the minds of young people, and this led to him starting the Education Options Expo in 2014 to assist parents in their research efforts in order to support the dreams and passions of their children.
Now he is full of hope as he introduces parents to respectful learning models that their children can benefit from today.
