What Defines Homeschooling?
The debate over what can be considered “true homeschooling” is heating up. Most recently, it has centered on the variety of new, online education options, especially those that receive government funding. According to a recent article published by The Heartland Institute, it’s leading to some confusion for parents who wish to homeschool.
“When you take government money, there's always strings attached,” said Debi Ketron, the director of the Indiana Association of Home Educators, in her interview with author Kate Patrick. “We choose freedom because we can choose our own curriculum.”
