The Homeschooling Book of Answers: The 88 Most Important Questions Answered by Homeschooling's Most Respected Voicesby Linda Dobson
Synopses & Reviews
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."
"If you plan to homeschool, make sure you read this book. Your child's education depends on it."
"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."
"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."
Contributors include: John Taylor Gatto, author of Dumbing Us Down; David and Micki Colfax, authors of Homeschooling for Excellence; Raymond and Dorothy Moore, authors of School Can Wait; Mark and Helen Hegener, publishers of Home Education Magazine; Susannah Sheffer, editor of Growing Without Schooling
Homeschooling parents lack the support and help most parents receive from their kid's school, and they hunger for answers to the most frequently recurring questions. In this invaluable reference, Linda Dobson provides those answers by enlisting the help of over 40 experienced homeschooling parents and children.
