Homeschooling: The Basics


About the Author:

Diana McAlister, homeschool pioneer in Washington state since 1981, founded Family Academy, the first unique blend of private and home schooling in the nation. Diana’s association with several other like-minded certificated teachers, committed to equipping homeschoolers, is growing into a professional group dedicated to efficiency and success. A former pubic school teacher, she home educated her four daughters, publishing the first edition of Homeschooling the High Schooler in 1983. This abbreviated course is a taste of a more fulfilling course entitled “Able to Teach” for parents and teacher consultants.”
