Homeschooling in America

Capturing and Assessing the Movement

Joseph F. Murphy,

Homeschooling in America: Capturing and Assessing the Movement
 
 

This book is the definitive study on homeschooling in the United States, delving into a movement that impacts more students nationwide than the entire charter school movement. In 2010, more than 2 million students were homeschooled. 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 over 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 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 what it means for education today.
