Publisher Comments:

Homeschooling has become one of the fastest growing educational movements in the country. Most experts agree that, as of 1995, at least 500,000 school-age children were being educated by their parents, outside of schools, and that ten times as many parents consider the idea of homeschooling their children.

Author Mary Griffith is a homeschooler, and she knows the answers to the important questions parents ask themselves before deciding to homeschool. She also understands the challenges they face along the way. The Homeschooling Handbook guides homeschoolers through the decision-making process, to creating an effective study program. Parents will learn how to: find the best resources and materialsdiscover their child's learning stylefind the best program for their childmaintain a productive learning atmosphere at homedeal with legality issuesand much, much more . . .Full of practical tips and valuable insight from other homeschoolers who share their experiences, this book is a must-read for anyone who is currently homeschooling or considering the possibility.
