SepCon2004
« on: September 15, 2004, 10:55:45 am »

Anyone planning on attending this?  FSP booth?


Join the best thinkers on education at SepCon2004,
Saturday-Monday, November 20-22, at the lovely
Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC.
For details, click: <http://sepcon.org/index.php>.

          Our theme is

        GET THE KIDS OUT
       of HARMFUL SCHOOLS!

---Everyone at SepCon is an intellectually honest
---seeker of truth and a source of bold ideas.  
---What a super event!!  
      Dan Engler, former White House writer

---I liked the variety of speakers from different
---religious points of view.
     John Mark Reynolds, Founder and Director of the
     Torrey Honors Program, Biola University

---A must for all physicians who truly care  
---about the children under their care.
     Debra Monde, family physician, Florida

   That's a sample of the excitement of all who
have attended the four previous "SepCons"
sponsored by the Alliance for Separation of
School & State.

   SepCon2004 is the conference for those who
recognize that school-by-government simply cannot
be reformed. If we are to ever achieve honest
education---where teachers can honestly tell parents
what they are teaching---we must end government
involvement in schooling <http://sepcon.org/index.php>.

   At SepCon, you can share your thoughts with
major speakers who have been laboring in the
vineyards of educational freedom:

  * Michael Farris, President of Patrick Henry
        College and founder, HSLDA
  * John Taylor Gatto, 1991 New York State
        Teacher of the Year
  * Joe Sobran, America's "Deep Thinker Columnist"
  * David Noebel, President of Summit Ministries
  * Cathy Duffy, author of "Government Nannies"
  * Marshall Fritz, Founder of the Alliance for
        Separation of School & State
  * James Taylor, Former Chairman of the
        Dept. of Education, Hillsdale College
  * Daniel Smithwick, E. Ray Moore, Bruce Shortt,
        T.C. Pinckney, Bob Burg, and many more

   You'll be mixing with some of the boldest
education thinkers in the world who want to
"Get the Kids Out" of government-controlled school
system. They want to hear your ideas and you'll
want to hear theirs.

   And it's all at the Omni Shoreham Hotel.
Situated within 11 acres of the lushly verdant
Rock Creek Park and across the street from the
National Zoo, the historic Omni Shoreham Hotel is
D.C.'s largest AAA "Four-Diamond" hotel ... and
we have negotiated incredibly low room rates of
$129 per night!

   Reserve your place.... Register before Oct. 20
and save $50 off the $299 standard registration.

It's worth it to hear John Taylor Gatto :)

I wonder if we could get in on this:

Round Table Sponsors

Monday, November 22nd, will include one 75-minute session of "Round Tables" where discussion groups of 10-15 people will enjoy speakers and other specialists in specific interests.

You can lead a Round Table in your interest field! You will be listed in the program and qualify for a Poster Display. The sponsor fee for a 75-minute Round Table is $100.

You would choose your topic(s) from the topics listed on the Conference schedule (click here to view the scheduled topics). If you have a passion for a particular aspect of Honest Education and want to network with others from around the country, you can see how this is a golden opportunity for you. Your picture will be shown in the program and you will be given a half-minute to introduce yourself at the opening session of SepCon.

I'd go if I could, but I can't.  But I'll sponsor the booth if someone can make the event.

Y'all,

A plan for SepCon2004 may be coming together.  However we *need your help*.  

It appears at least one of our DC area local Porcs is able to attend the event.  That means we can send a representative to SepCon2004 with *no travel expenses*.  This is a outstanding opportunity for the FSP.

What's more, we have the cost of a discussion roundtable *already covered*.  That's a $100 contribution towards having a 75-minute session for our representative to discuss ways we can *actually succeed* in New Hampshire at separating school and state.  The synergy should be excellent.  It's possible we could find some very motivated people who would love to separate school and state and are ready to make a move someplace to expedite success.

So we have the travel expenses covered.  We have the table fee covered.  The only thing we need to do now is pay the admission fee for the person who will run the table.  The normal registration fee is $299, but if we act fast, we can get our representative in the door for $249.  This gets our representative into the *whole event*.  In addition to leading our roundtable discussion, they'll hear from great speakers like Joseph Farah, John Taylor Gatto, Marshall Fritz, and many more.  

That's right, for a mere $249, we can bring the FSP's vision of action to the movers and shakers in the world of educational freedom.  Plus, we can hear from them about what works, what doesn't, and what they might suggest when it comes to actually creating a free educational environment right here in America.

If you want to see this event happen, please help out by making a contribution earmarked "SepCon".  The early bird registration ends October 20th, so will close this mini-fund-drive on the 19th.  We need $249.00 between now and then.  

Thanks a million to all of you who are willing to help out!
