As a blog that encourages others to consider the benefits of homeschooling, I think you should also post the history of the movement. Since many homeschooling parents turn out to be the mom, I would like to direct my comments to them.

As a mom, you know how much you love your children. Can you imagine how it would feel to have them taken from you?

Well, one of the first mothers to home-school her children did lose them, and had to fight the state of New York and the local public school officials to get them back. A short version of her story can be found at http://www.examiner.com/spiritual-perspectives-in-baltimore/in-the-face-of-adversity-the-story-behind-the-home-schooling-movement.

I am trying to tell the story of this remarkable and courageous woman, and hope you will help me spread the word. You see, she is my mom, and I was one of the first to be home-schooled.

Will you help me? View the story, and spread the word to your homeschooling friends.

I do hope you will help me. My best to all moms who home-school. They show their great love for their kids!

Sincerely,
Amy B Gracey

Why do you think distance education or online learning has become so prominent? Well, it's not just the spiraling cost of higher education but the range of courses that are available online? There are many areas of study ranging from the academic through to personal interest and leisure courses. The qualifications gained after completion of study can range from certificate through to masters degree, depending on the course. Online education has now become an accredited and accepted form of education for students without the high cost of college or university fees.
