- DEClassicalHomeEducatorsNetwork (DEClassical Home Educators Network) - We are an all-inclusive Classical home educators support group for families Classically educating their children in the Wilmington-Elkton-Philadelphia area; and extending out to N Delaware, NE Maryland, SW New Jersey, and SE Pennsylvania area.
As a group we meet year-round to chat, discuss goals and educational resources, and to support each other.

When we gather together we discuss Classical Education in-depth, however we rarely do such discussions on-line. As a local Classically-Educating group this affords us the opportunity to get to know each other in person too.
This group is for those following the classical homeschooling education model, such as described in The Well Trained Mind (Jessie Wise and Susan Bauer) or in Teaching the Trivium (Bluedorn's) or similar method.
This group is open to families who are actively home educating children in grades K - 12. We are open to discussing issues of classical education with those who are considering classically homeschooling their children in the future, however our membership is for those families home educating their children in grades K-12. This forum is a means for us to exchange homeschooling information and ideas, upcoming local events and opportunities, and resources in support of our common effort to provide a classical education for our children.

- del-awareness (Delaware Education Law Awareness) - DELAWARE EDUCATION LAW AWARENESS,(del-awareness), is open to anyone interested in parent's rights to control the upbringing and education of their children.
This list is an unmoderated networking and information-sharing tool. Because this list is open, we are a very diverse group. Opinions expressed on this list belong to the authors.
BIG WARNING! Please do not depend on others to find every piece of legislation that may usurp our freedoms! Each person is responsible for searching LIS for pending legislation and for communicating their own opinions to legislators.
When searching for new legislation that might affect parent's rights, remember that DOE uses DSS to enforce education laws. Therefore, it is wise to include broad search terms, such as "education" and "school," in addition to narrow terms, such as "homeschool," and "home school." Be prepared for a large volume of education-related legislation.
