The purpose of the Education Options Expo is to introduce parents to respectful learning options for K-12 students, such as apprenticeships, homeschooling, self-directed learning, democratic schooling, entering college early, musical arts, physical arts, and more.
****Free Childcare & Parking Included with Ticket Price*****
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.
