I’ve been writing about homeschooling since 1983. That is, I’ve been writing about it professionally since then; my writings about families and children and learning – everything that comprises what we’ve come to know as homeschooling – go much, much farther back. I did a quick search of my name the other day and came up with almost 3,500 results, including several articles and essays I’d totally forgotten! Someday I’ll share some of those writings (or you can do your own Internet search for my name), but for now this blog is only about my writings as an editor and publisher of the magazine which supports this website.
My perspective has changed over the course of more than twenty years, and the homeschooling movement has undergone many significant changes. But I can go back to our earliest issues, my first writings about families learning together, and most of what I wrote way back then is still relevant, still worth reading. I like to think that’s a sign of a good writer, but maybe it’s just a sign that some things never change.
