United States DoDEA
Sue was flown to Washington D.C. to consult with the military about what to do about homeschooling families stationed overseas. (The main problem being that these families come from states with various requirements and are sometimes in countries where unschooling is illegal. What's the commander to do?) Sue helped draft a policy that could work for all homeschooling families overseas.
