JOHNSBURG – U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren, R-Winfield, will host a meet and greet and talk about homeschooling at the Johnsburg Public Library on Monday.

The "State of Homeschooling" event will take place from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the library's Homeschool Resource Center, located at 3000 N. Johnsburg Rd.

“As a father of two homeschooling boys, protecting this important educational option for families is close to my heart,” Hultgren said in a news release. “As homeschooling households continue to grow in number in Illinois and across the country, I invite everyone interested in homeschooling to talk about what issues and legislation affect the movement."

Hultgren has signed onto a letter with other members of Congress requesting a meeting with the German ambassador regarding the country’s ongoing "persecution and unequal treatment of homeschooling families," the release said.

The event is open to the public.
