This website is no longer being updated. Most of its content, including research citations, has been transferred to the website for the International Center for Home Education Research (ICHER.org), an organization I have founded along with several colleagues from around the world.
PLEASE CHECK OUT ICHER.ORG -- a resource for journalists, policymakers, scholars, and others interested in reviews of recent scholarship, extensive database searches, homeschool regulations, and more.
