Publisher Comments:

Homeschooling is revolutionizing the way many children in this country are educated. Increasing numbers of parents are finding that homeschools provide their children with a learning environment superior to that of public schools. Whether you are currently homeschooling or are just considering it, you've probably had questions, such as: Can I afford it? How do I set up a plan of study? And, most important, is homeschooling right for my child? Here—at last—are honest, practical answers to all of your questions and more!



Drawing from the collective wisdom and experience of the 39 most respected mentors in the field, The Homeschooling Book of Answers is your essential guide to one of the biggest trends in education. Learn how homeschooling may be your family's best method for providing your child with the finest education. Your child deserves it!



"I can't imagine a more helpful book on homeschooling — a happy marriage of the realistic with the idealistic, the passionate with the practical. Until our schools are not just reformed but truly transformed, every parent should consider this alternative."

— George Leonard, author of Education and Ecstasy and Mastery



"If you plan to homeschool, make sure you read this book. Your child's education depends on it."

— Senator Vince Illuzzi



"The Homeschooling Book of Answers is filled with common sense for homeschoolers or any other parents who care deeply about their children's education. This book is a must-read for people who care about how and what their children learn — at home or in one of the expensive institutional juggernauts that have a difficult time keeping up with them."

— Craig Lancto, educator and newspaper columnist



"Delightfully easy to read, this most timely, valuable, informative, and critically needed work covers the home school issue with an encyclopedic thoroughness. I can only applaud and pass the word."

— Joseph Chilton Pearce, author of The Crack in the Cosmic Egg and Magical Child
