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...

Pioneering the Way

Pioneering the Way

Do you remember when you first learned about the idea of homeschooling your children? Did it seem naturally right for you, or did you have to think about it a while, find out more information, discuss it with a few people, read a book or two and warm up to the idea first? For...

Holding the Center of Homeschooling

As I check my feedreaders for information and news about homeschooling, I’m surprised by the number of articles and blog essays which appear these days; it seem as though the annual back-to-school parade now necessitates an almost parallel reporting on the cutely-tagged ‘not-back-to-school’ crowd.

Doubts

Doubts

Not long ago I received an email letter from a mother expressing doubts about her ability to homeschool her children.

Circles

It transcends barriers of language and culture, leaps through time and space, affects everyone from the youngest and most helpless babies to the oldest and most careworn cynics.

Watercolor Children

Watercolor Children

Watercolor Children by Helen Hegener – July/August, 2002 As a writer I work with the precise meanings of words.

Realizing many years ago that writing was a very controlled activity, and seeking an alternative which might...
