The Homeschool Convention Season Is On
Spring is here, and all across America homeschool conventions are sprouting like mushrooms in virtually every state in the Union. And with each passing year, these mushrooms have grown larger and larger to the point where they require the biggest convention centers in their respective states. There are hundreds of vendors and exhibitors at these conventions offering a plethora of educational programs for parents seeking the best for their children, plus instructive workshops, and knowledgeable, charismatic speakers. It is wonderful to see how truly interested parents can be in the education of their children, browsing the vendor booths, asking questions, buying books and programs on a tight family budget without the help of the taxpayer.

I’ve been exhibiting at these conventions since they began in the 1980s. In Massachusetts, our state organization, MassHope, held its first convention in a church ...

Okay, so you made a false inference. I can assure you the point was not to make a comparison to other forms of education whether privately run or not.
Rather the point was a reference to the Black Friday like hysteria and panic buying that I have eyewitnessed homeschoolers engaging in at these events. Perhaps you have never seen this.
Re panic & hysteria, I'm not discerning enough to tell what mental condition other people are in, & I've seen nothing comparable to Black Friday behavior either. And this in a state with fairly liberal homeschool regulations.

It's not as if homeschool materials can be purchased any time at a local Target, so it is unsurprising if people may stock up. And it's nice to be able to peruse curricula, which is hard to do by Internet.

Register, as others will point out also nothing in life is free--except the grace of Christ. I seem to have had a problem when trying to connect with that URL that I just left. I guess I'll give it one more try and see how well this does? NCHEA 2012 Conference and Curriculum Fair. This URL seems to work, after putting it into shape. Indian Hills Community Church has been the host for this meeting many times, if not every time? I seriously doubt that my church makes any or even a little money off of this conference.

So? Don't you think gov't education deserves a much larger ‚ÄúKa-ching‚ÄĚ as well?

This leads me to suspect that some people have trouble digesting the idea that education is a business, whether it is state-run or not.
