From HSLDA: Our third update on the WISDOM/Trinity decision in Alberta

The judge ruled in favour of WISDOM/Trinity and gave a temporary injunction, meaning that WISDOM/Trinity is allowed to continue operating as normal, except without receiving any further funding from the government, until the next court date set for January 5, 2017. Wisdom continues to demonstrate its integrity and commitment to home education by operating with severely limited funding.

This means that families can continue homeschooling as normal without needing to re-notify anywhere. HSLDA is continuing in discussion with AHEA and other pertinent parties to ensure that homeschooling families in Alberta have the information, support, and options that they need.

ARCHE – Many positive developments in Alberta

Here is an update from HSLDA on the Alberta Government allegations against Trinity/Wisdom. There seems to be some confusion among ARCHE homeschoolers. Read the full story on the HSLDA blog; here is my quick synopsis:

1) The allegations made by Minister Eggens have not been proven.

2) Parents are not being told they have to send their children to school.

3) There is no current request to re-register home education programs with another school board.

4) Contingency plans HSLDA and AHEA have worked with several school boards on contingency plans.

5) AHEA held meetings in Calgary and Edmonton, with HSLDA present, to provide information and encouragement, as well as to hear directly from concerned parents.

6) WISDOM Homeschooling and Trinity Christian School have filed an application for judicial review concerning the decision made against them, and have filed an injunction requiring AB Education to reinstate accreditation to WISDOM/Trinity . You can read their statement on their website.

7) This is an example of how important it is for all home educating families to support their provincial home education association (AHEA, SHBE, etc), and to have an HSLDA membership.
