Founded in 1984, North Carolinians for Home Education (NCHE) is a private, volunteer organization active at the state level, serving homeschoolers in North Carolina and beyond.
In order to better serve, NCHE divides the state into nine regions. Each region has an assigned number and Regional Director.
Homeschooling is the view that education is best when teaching and learning are integrated into the relationships and activities of the family.
The oldest form of education, homeschooling was legally recognized in NC in 1988.
Article 39 of chapter 115C of the General Statutes defines a Homeschool in NC. The Division of Non-Public Instruction (DNPE) administers the NC law governing homeschooling practice.

Over 5,500 events are already confirmed for National School Choice Week this year which runs January 26-February 1, 2014.
The event is being coordinated by Parents for Educational Freedom in North Carolina. The celebration will be a series of speeches and performances and will take place in the Carolinas Aviation Museum, 4672 First Flight Drive, Charlotte, NC 28208. The event will begin at 8:30 am and NCHE president, Kevin McClain, will be speaking about home education at about 8:55 am.
There will be about 50 seats for available for homeschool parents and students. Among the dignitaries speaking there will be well known politicians and public figures.
