Contextualizing Home School Data: A Response to Rudner.
Welner, Kariane Mari; Welner, Kevin G.
Education Policy Analysis Archives, v7 n13 1999
Rudner's analysis of data from a large survey of home-schooled students provides an inaccurate portrayal of home-schooling families as a white, Christian, monolithic population. Insufficient attention to the data's biases gives an erroneous picture of home schooling. (SLD)
