Homeschooling in America: Capturing and Assessing the Movement
Simon and Schuster, 4 feb. 2014 - 200 páginas
This revealing and balanced portrait of homeschooling today provides a full history of the movement, demographic insights, and extensive research on how homeschooled children fare in the United States. Delving into a movement that impacts more students nationwide than the entire charter school movement, this book explores:
• The history of homeschooling in America
• How this movement has grown in credibility and enrollment exponentially
• The current state of homeschooling, including questions about who gets homeschooled, why, and what is the success—academically and in life—of students who are homeschooled
• The impact of homeschooling on the student and on American society
In 2010, more than two million students were homeschooled. In the most extensive survey and analysis of research on homeschooling, spanning the birth of the movement in the 1970s to today, Homeschooling in America shines a light on one of the most important yet least understood social movements of the last forty years and explores what it means for education today.
