This summer, the Ohio Senate adopted Senate Resolution 252 “Honoring Rachel Brown on winning the 2010 Ohio Right to Life Oratory Contest.”
In the resolution, the Senate acknowledges that Rachel Brown is a homeschooled student and “a person of intelligence and integrity.” It proclaims that Rachel “represents all those throughout Ohio who have realized their aspirations,” and that “she has distinguished herself among a select group of students whose efforts merit praise...With her vitality, intelligence, and positive outlook, she has set a fine example for her peers.”
The Senate then applauds her personal success and extends best wishes for her future.
HSLDA is pleased, but not surprised, to hear of Rachel’s accomplishments. Homeschooled students receive individualized instruction in a loving and nurturing environment with the highest levels of academic engagement. As evidenced and acknowledged here, homeschooling is capable of producing students who are mature, self-motivated and advanced in study skills.
