Online registration is underway for a home school convention being hosted in Cincinnati this spring. As part of a series of home school conventions – with Cincinnati being one of three stops - the Duke Energy Center will be packed with home school enthusiasts April 24 - 26, 2014. Current home school parents, students, curriculum providers and speakers will convene with the vision to teach children “to think critically, to be able to access a broad spectrum of knowledge, and to formulate reasoned conclusions as individuals…” A variety of workshops will be offered, including “Homeschooling 101”, presented by curriculum specialist and author Cathy Duffy.
Notable convention guests include Dr. Benjamin Carson, the neurosurgeon recently hired as a contributor for Fox News. Entertainment for the convention will feature Christian comedian Mark Lowry, a member of the award-winning gospel group Gaither Vocal Band and lyricist for the beloved Christmas ballad “Mary, Did You Know?” Pro-life advocate Gianna Jessen will speak on Saturday. Convention exhibitors include Cedarville University, LEGO Education, Saxon Homeschool, Willis Music/Steinway & Sons, YWAM Publishing and many more.
