Supportive community
It is our heart's desire that Homeschool Speak be a safe place for homeschool encouragement, fellowship, support, and help. We allow the discussion of all topics in this group, however, we will not tolerate bullying, hate speech, trolling, anti-homeschooling rhetoric, profanity, pornography (or any sexual content unless it's related to sex education), or illegal activity.

Everyone has the right to disagree and express their thoughts, but do so in a way that does not attack or insult another. All posts should be respectful and courteous.

Inclusive community
The Homeschoool Speak community is welcoming to all homeschoolers (past or present), or those considering homeschooling.
