Why would a public school teacher homeschool his own kids? Find out in this insightful examination of the pros and cons of both public and home schools. Using a well-balanced mixture of careful research and personal experience, Guterson makes a case for the academic, social, and political benefits of homeschooling; offers a number of useful perspectives from which to view it; and suggests ideas for cooperation between school districts and homeschooling families. 254 pages, softcover from Harcourt Brace.
In an honest, perceptive discussion of children and education by the bestselling author of "Snow Falling on Cedars", Guterson answers questions about homeschooling but also reflects on broader issues, such as family life, individual fulfillment, and community.
