Welcome to Ohioans for Educational Freedom!
We are citizens who believe in civic responsibility. We have dedicated ourselves to assisting the best possible candidates to an electable office. Believing we can make a difference, we have put our collective abilities together to preserve our core values and retain our moral fabric. We hope you will come on board and join with us as we accomplish our mission! The Ohioans for Educational Freedom PAC is the only Ohio political action committee that is singularly focused on protecting the rights of Ohio's home educators.
Next year, we will have listed candidates for State Board of Education, Ohio House and Ohio Senate in 2014, starting with the primaries. Please bookmark our page and check back with us, often. Our web site has been a popular landing spot during this election season, with over 1.9 million hits in four months!
If you are an Ohio resident, individuals can donate up to $50.00 and couples up to $100.00 and receive that money back when you file your Ohio taxes this Spring as a credit, so if you can contribute this amount, it is for a good cause and an important election for Ohio parental choice in education and it is not costing you anything.

Here is something you can do: Go to the German Embassy in Washington DC's Facebook page and make a comment in support about the Wunderlich family (German home schoolers). If you post, be sure you understand it is the German government you are speaking with. I intend to post something, but only in support of the family.
