Hopefully, you’ve already discovered The Homeschool Show! This is our most recent project to help parents homeschool with confidence and joy. This week we released episode 9, and we’ve already had guests on the show like Dr. Brian Ray (NHERI), attorney Dan Beasley (HSLDA), Yvette Hampton (of the Schoolhouse Rocked documentary), Tim Lambert (THSC), Dr. Kathy Koch (Celebrate Kids), and more! We’ve discussed current legislative issues in NC and offered lots of homeschool tips. 

Would you consider helping us with the show? Here’s what you can do:

1) Watch it.

We release a new episode of the show every Monday by 9:00 am. You can watch it on the show’s homepage or on YouTube. Be sure to subscribe to our channel!

2) Share it.

Help us spread the word! When you see our Facebook and Instagram posts about the show, share them. Also, please take just a moment and share a link to the show with friends and family that you think will be interested.

3) Give us feedback.

Please let us know if you have any questions or topics you’d like us to address. And as you watch the show, if you have any ideas for how we can improve it, please email us at thehomeschoolshow@nche.com

4) Submit videos for the Homeschool Reality Moment.

The Homeschool Reality Moment is a segment of the show when we take a look at what is going on in real homeschools in NC. This segment shows video clips of parents sharing stories and experiences from their homes that are funny, moving, and inspiring. Please record your video horizontally (not the normal way you hold your phone). We want videos about 1 to 3 minutes long. It could be just a video of you telling a story of something that happened or a conversation you had. It could be a project idea or homeschool hack that you show through the video. Remember to keep it real. Don’t forget that this will also be shared as a podcast, so be sure you are giving narration as you show something. Send your videos to thehomeschoolshow@nche.com.

5) Advertise on the show.

If you own a business (or know someone who does), please consider sponsoring or placing an advertisement on the show. You can read all about it here. The Homeschool Show is produced in the News Talk WSIC studio and broadcast at 8:30 am on Mondays in the northern Charlotte, Lake Norman, Statesville and Iredell County region. We then upload the video and audio recordings of the show to YouTube and our podcast channels. The Homeschool Show is promoted each week through our social media channels (more than 27,000 followers) and email list (more than 13,000 subscribers).

6) Donate to NCHE

If you are grateful for what NCHE does, please consider making a donation. Our mission is to help parents homeschool with confidence and joy by protecting your right to homeschool in NC, equipping you with information and encouragement, and connecting you with other families and groups.

We are currently facing a budget shortfall for 2021. Our goal is to raise $20,000 by the end of the year to close this gap. You can help us continue to serve homeschoolers, like producing The Homeschool Show, when you make a generous donation.
