Homeschooling in Virginia: Understanding the Processes, Approaches, and Outcomes/Implications for Educators

Dr Kristi Stroud Fowler.


Home schooling is an increasingly critical social and educational issue. Growing numbers of home schoolers are changing the way educators and the general public view traditional education and what it means to be an educated person. This presentation explores the impetus, approaches, processes, and outcomes of homeschooling for three families. In addition, the findings of the research and implications for educators are explored.
