Home Schooling Goes Mainstream
Gaither, Milton
Education Next, v9 n1 p10-19 Win 2009
This article reports that while home schooling may have particular appeal to celebrities, over the last decade families of all kinds have embraced the practice for widely varying reasons: no longer is home schooling exclusive to Christian fundamentalism and the countercultural Left. Along with growing acceptance of home schooling nationally has come increasing diversification of who home schools and of what home schooling actually means. For a growing number of Americans, however, home schooling is just one option among many to consider, for a few months or for the entirety of a child's schooling. (Contains 3 figures.)
