Pillar Foundation • 15820 Clayton Road, Ellisviille, MO 63011

Dr. Ray will help you consider the answers to questions such as the following?

  • Are parents qualified to teach their children, academically?
  • What about socialization?
  • Should ethnic minorities homeschool their children?
  • How will these children succeed – or fail – in the “real world” of adulthood”?
  • What are the findings of the Gen2 Survey (Generation 2, Millennials)?
  • Is Common Core any good?

If you have an interest in or concern about the “outcomes of home education,” think that homeschooling is bad for society (or good for society), or you are a veteran homeschooler who just needs a little morale boost, you won’t want to miss this presentation. Good books and other relevant resources on child training and homeschooling will be available.
Admission: FREE to the public. Offerings appreciated to benefit the nonprofit National Home Education Research Institute and ongoing research. Books, reports and videos will be available for purchase.

Bring the curious, the critic, your friend, your pastor, and your children’s grandparents. Dr. Ray will have some good books and reports on homeschooling and child training for sale.

The posted events are open to all homeschoolers in the St. Louis, MO, area (including St. Louis City, St. Louis County, St. Charles County, Lincoln County, Franklin County, and Jefferson County in MO, and Madison County, Monroe County, and St. Clair County in IL, and surrounding regions).
NOTE: Inclusion in this list does not necessarily indicate endorsement by the blog owner. I try to include as many events or classes I know of in the Greater St. Louis area that would be of special interest to homeschoolers. Some of these events come from a distinctively “Christian” perspective, while others are purely “secular” in nature. If you see things that you would not be particularly interested in, just ignore them and look for the things that do appeal to you.
