With representations from both the "mainstream" evangelical and ultra-conservative lifestyles, Kunzman's research turns up both the classic successful homeschooler, as well as homeschoolers whose children seem to be struggling with the education they're receiving. Empathetic yet challenging, his questions focus on how Christian homeschooling parents balance wanting their children to follow in their footsteps with building independent thinking skills, as well as on how they build civically-responsible children.
Some readers might feel odd reading what is obviously an outsider's perspective on homeschooling, or question his recommendations. However, in making his own pre suppositions, questions, and leanings clear, he presents an honest picture of how he sees homeschooling currently working now and in the future. 229 pages, softcover.

Homeschooling is a large and growing phenomenon in U.S. societythe National Center for Education Statistics recently reported that in the last decade it grew at twelve times the rate of public school enrollments. Yet information about this population is terribly incomplete. In this groundbreaking book, Robert Kunzman uses his unprecedented access to six conservative Christian homeschooling families to explore the subset of this elusive world that most influences public perception and rhetoric about the homeschooling movement, from its day-to-day life to its broader aspirations to transform American culture and politics.
