Protecting Your Rights Since 1992
The purpose of the Idaho Coalition of Home Educators is to protect the right to home educate within the state of Idaho. To this end, ICHE sponsors the following:
- Standardized Testing: Annual testing on the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills (ITBS) and the Iowa Tests of Educational Development (ITED) is offered to home educated students at testing sites throughout the state. Graphs of ICHE scores compared with Idaho public school and national scores are prepared for public distribution.
- Legislative Day: At an annual reception at the Statehouse, ICHE testing data and student projects are displayed. Legislators and other public officials interact with students and parents concerning the excellence of home education.
- E-mail Legislative Alerts: Information concerning pending legislation which directly relates to home education is disseminated to current ICHE members via posting on this web site and with notification by e-mail. This includes Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) updates and alerts.
