Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

"This book addresses the questions that critics are most concerned about: Who are Home Schoolers? Why do they take this task on? What are the results? Is it really legal? "The authors contribute to dispelling the myth of isolation, especially in the book's strongest section, the narrative accounts of real parents." Linda Montgomery, Principal King's High School, Seattle, Washington Presents an unbiased, thorough look at the growing phenomenon of home schooling and its effect on the people involved. Includes case studies that explore the motivations and characteristics of parent educators. This book gives you real insight into the why, who, what, and how of home schooling.
