Homeschooling Backgrounder is a resource for policymakers and journalists. We provide information they want to know before making policy decisions or writing informed articles about homeschooling.
MISSION AND POLICY STATEMENT
Homeschooling Backgrounder’s mission is to promote the use of credible data and reasoned analysis about homeschooling. The intent is to counterbalance current public criticisms of homeschooling based primarily on speculation, presuppositions, and opinions.
We support the use of the scientific method when investigating homeschooling outcomes. This includes gathering systematic data as much as possible, rather than citing anecdotes, and basing the next steps upon that data. Our policy is to rely on the best data available.
