The number of homeschoolers is growing exponentially, but I think homeschooling’s greatest leap is yet to come. I envision a culture ten years from now where parents routinely consider homeschooling as an option for their child’s education. But how do we reach the point where homeschooling is regarded as one of three common education options (public school and private school being the other two)? I believe we homeschoolers need to do what we do best…educate! We’ve all heard the homeschool stereotypes, right? I’d like to address and eliminate those stereotypes. Who amongst us hasn’t fielded the socialization question two or twenty times? The general public has a lot of questions about what homeschooling is and what it isn’t. How many more parents would homeschool their kids if they knew it were an option, a real option? …if they knew “normal” families do it? …if they knew how to do it?
This is where you come in. I’m starting what I call the Homeschool Project, and I invite you to join me. Check out the Homeschool Project page of my site, and join in the conversation. If you homeschool, tell us about it. If you don’t homeschool, but you’re curious about it, ask questions.
I look forward to meeting you and learning from you.
