History and Current Status of Homeschooling (selected articles and resources)

Our experience at MHLA has shown us that the more informed we are about all aspects of homeschooling, the more effective we can be in dealing with officials who might have (or hope to have) some say in homeschool regulations. To help keep you informed about the history and current status of homeschooling, MHLA has collected some articles that we have found valuable.
