Description
This volume explores the topics relating to homeschooling by presenting varied expert opinions that examine many of the different aspects that comprise these issues. Homeschooling is the education of children at home, typically by parents but sometimes by tutors, rather than in other formal settings of public or private school. The viewpoints are selected from a wide range of highly respected and often hard-to-find sources and publications. Allows the reader to attain the higher-level critical thinking and reading skills that are essential in a culture of diverse and contradictory opinions.
