Sen. Amanda Chase (R-Midlothian): WELCOME REPRESENTATIVES FROM THE HOME EDUCATORS ASSOCIATION OF VIRGINIA, AND WITH THEM TODAY IS DIRECTOR OF DEVELOPMENT, KEVIN HE FT. HE'S IN THE GALLERY TODAY. OUR COMMONWEALTH HAS A RICH TRADITION OF HOME EDUCATION WITH MANY NOTABLE VIRGINIANS WHO WERE EDUCATED AT HOME, SUCH AS GEORGE WASHINGTON, PATRICK HENRY, ROBERT E. LEE AND BOOKER T. WASHINGTON, AND I MIGHT ALSO ADD THE CHASE CHILDREN. AS WE SPEAK, THERE ARE ALMOST 40,000 HOME SCHOOLERS IN VIRGINIA. THESE STUDENTS COME FROM A DIVERSE ARRAY OF BACKGROUNDS AND ECONOMIC CONDITIONS AND UTILIZE A VARIETY OF CUSTOMIZED EDUCATION METHODS, INCLUDING ONLINE TUTORS AND TRADITIONAL HOME SCHOOLING. TODAY IS A VERY SPECIAL DAY FOR THESE HOME SCHOOLERS, BECAUSE TODAY IS THE HOME EDUCATORS' ASSOCIATION OF VIRGINIA'S ANNUAL DAY AT THE CAPITOL, WHERE PARENTS AND THEIR STUDENTS COME TO OUR STORIED CAPITOL TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THEIR STATE GOVERNMENT. I FOR ONE, THIS IS HOW I FIRST GOT INVOLVED IN POLITICS AND LEARNED ABOUT MY GOVERNMENT, AND I FOR ONE AM SO PROUD OF THESE YOUNG CIVICALLY ENGAGED VIRGINIANS AND WOULD LIKE TO WELCOME THEM.

[Unknown]: THANK YOU, SENATOR. WOULD MEMBERS FROM THE HOME EDUCATORS ASSOCIATION OF VIRGINIA PLEASE RISE. THANK YOU ALL FOR BEING WITH US THIS AFTERNOON, AND WE'RE BLESSED IN THE COMMONWEALTH TO HAVE SO MANY EDUCATIONAL OPTIONS, AND WE APPRECIATE WHAT YOU DO TO ADVOCATE FOR THE OPTION OF HOME SCHOOLING. VERY IMPORTANT. SO WE APPRECIATE YOU BEING HERE
