Why Homeschool?
Dr. Ben J. Mettes
This article was written by Drs. Ben J. Mettes, who has degrees in psychology and communications, and looks at the way in which school enforces a specific psychological mindset onto children. The article looks critically at the education system, including University, and argues that it does not prepare for future jobs. School destroys intelligence, by focusing on the left hemisphere and silencing the right hemisphere of the brain.
The Evils Of Mandatory Testing
David Weathers
As home schooling grows as a movement, there is increasing politics from anti-home school forces to try to interfere with or legislatively control home schoolers. This has come to include legislative attempts to force home school students to take standardized tests along with public school students. But mandatory testing doesn't work in public schools, and it won't work for home schoolers.

Through amazing hands-on exhibits, larger-than-life IMAX® films and quality educational programs, McWane Center in Birmingham strives to make learning an adventure for all ages.

Discussion for homeschooling fans of John Holt, whose books Learning All the Time, Never Too Late, and Teach your Own have made unschooling an option for thousands of families.

Scott W. Somerville, Esq.
Twenty years ago, home education was treated as a crime in almost every state. Today, it is legal all across America, despite strong and continued opposition from many within the educational establishment. How did this happen? This paper traces the legal and sociological history of the modern home school movement, and then suggests factors that led to this movement's remarkable success.
