Looking Forward

By
Mark Hegener, Co-founder and 'once again' Publisher of Home Education Magazine

I could never imagine the future without an understanding of the past. Home Education Magazine’s recent past is complex and confusing. It will take time before that story can be told. But for our lapse in service, for issues missed and for the confusion that was caused, I apologize. It will take weeks, maybe...

Others are personal homeschooling stories that will help other parents overcome challenges.

    Staying Informed The issues facing homeschoolers today are fundamentally the same as 30 years ago when HEM was first published.
