Home Schooling Information and Resources

Home schooling as an alternative to public or private school is here to stay. In addition, publicly funded vouchers for education have major implications for those who choose to home school their children as well as for traditional forms of education. Ultimately, courts will have to answer the question of whether parents who home school their children are eligible for publicly funded vouchers. I believe the Constitution is on the side of the home schoolers in this matter. The implications of all of this are staggering.

There are many reasons for the shift toward home schooling. It certainly has become an increasingly attractive alternative for many parents who are concerned with traditional education systems. Recent statistics indicate that over two million students in the United States are home schooled. If you are considering home schooling for one or more of your children, make sure you have reliable information upon which to make a decision. There are thousands of sites on the Internet that have information about home schooling, some useful, some not, and some that exist merely to espouse a particular philosophy under the guise of home schooling. There are networks of parents and professionals that can provide you with virtually all the information you need to make this important choice, not just for your children, but for you. Below are links that I have visited and found worthwhile.
