MÂCHÉ works year round to encourage all Minnesota home educators through various events, monitored legislation, and reliable information. While we currently homeschool freely, every session of the Minnesota Legislature and the U.S. Congress introduces bills that would adversely affect home educators.

MÂCHÉ was formed in 1983 to encourage Christian families in accord with biblical principles. Our vision was to assist parents in passing on to their children a godly heritage instilled through Judeo-Christian principles and to "bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the LORD." (Ephesians 6:4b NASB)  In 1986 with the help of the Lord and other interested organizations and people, MÂCHÉ was able to pack the chambers of the Minnesota Legislature with homeschooling families, making a very favorable impression upon the state leaders who at that time were writing Minnesota's first home education laws. Prior to then, many families were charged with abuse, neglect or negligence because the school they conducted was not "essentially equivalent" to the public or government schools. Over the years MÂCHÉ has continued to be used of the Lord to take the lead at the Legislature when parents’ educational rights and freedoms have been jeopardized.
