Oak Meadow’s faculty and staff have a deep background and years of experience in homeschooling education. One of the ways we get the word out about Oak Meadow at a time when homeschooling is growing exponentially (there are approximately two million homeschoolers in the U.S.) is by attending educational conferences around the country.
SXSWedu, held in Austin, Texas each March, is a large and diverse gathering of educators who explore together trends and innovations in education today. According to its website, “By providing a platform for collaboration, SXSWedu works to promote creativity and social change.”
