MCHE History in Pictures

Over the years, Montana home schooling families from across the state have been active in legislative issues affecting their God-given rights to instruct their children. Below are some memories of some of those important battles:

For a number of legislative sessions, home school support groups from across the state made beautiful banners to hang in the Capitol Rotunda highlighting home education in Montana:

In the 2007 Montana legislative session, more than 4000 home schooling parents and supporters gathered in the Montana Capitol to oppose draconian legislation introduced by Senator Don Ryan (Great Falls) aimed squarely against home school families. The bill was defeated in committee.
