WPA is a statewide, inclusive, grassroots organization. It was founded in 1984 to oppose legislation that would have severely limited homeschoolers' freedoms by giving the Department of Public Instruction power and authority over homeschools. Homeschoolers working together through WPA got the legislation amended so it became one of the most reasonable homeschooling laws in the country. Since that time, we have successfully countered numerous challenges to that law. This work continues today. The WPA: welcomes all homeschoolers; provides information, encouragement, and support for homeschoolers; brings families together through annual conferences and a network of Regional Coordinators; ensures the right of families to choose an education consistent with their principles and beliefs; informs the legislature, the media, and the general public about homeschooling and maintains a favorable climate of opinion for homeschooling in Wisconsin; monitors legislation and current developments that affect homeschooling families, keeps members informed, and coordinates action when needed; empowers families to make decisions based on their principles and beliefs, needs, and aspirations, and to respond to challenges from government, other large institutions, so-called “experts,” and others.
