I am Nadia, the director of HEFA
(Home Education Funding Alberta) a non-profit organization
I grew up in the Alberta Public Education system and unfortunately have nothing but bullying and regrets to remember it by.
However, I am very blessed to be married to a wonderful man who was Home Schooled and is an upstanding person. He is very intelligent and hard-working; by the age of 15 he had completed high-school and was working full-time.
Education is very important to the both of us as we have each completed our high-school diplomas and
post-secondary education. And now as parents, we want the best for our children and their education, which means Home Schooling them. We have already begun at the ripe age of 2 years old and have seen a great success!
I was moved to great disappointment and disgust when
I found out how immensely underfunded Home Education STILL is in Alberta. This needs to change!
Especially now with the current COVID-19 pandemic, there are more and more parents who are beginning to Home Educate their child(ren) to keep them healthy and safe.
Equal funding in Education = Equal choice in Education
