The National Parent Information Network (NPIN) was created in 1993 to collect and disseminate information about high-quality resources for parents. One of the services provided by NPIN is "Parent News," an Internet magazine that focuses on topics of interest to parents and to professionals who work with parents. Compiled in response to requests for a publication that would introduce those without Internet access to the activities and information available through NPIN, this "Best of" sourcebook provides and "offline" collection of education, parenting, child development, and family life information. Following descriptions of NPIN and of the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) and the ERIC Clearinghouse on Elementary and Early Childhood Education, the sourcebook is divided into four sections paralleling the sections in the Internet version. Articles in the "Feature Articles" section cover topics including work and family; brain development in young children, early education for special needs children, technology and the family, talking to children about sexuality and AIDS. Articles in the "Community Spotlights" section explore topics including the strength of family literacy, home visiting, and grandparent programs. Articles in the "Of Interest" section discuss topics such as building resilience in children, adolescence and gender issues, living in a stepfamily, and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. Following a brief description of the authors of the Parent News articles, the sourcebook concludes with full-text copies of ERIC digests produced by clearinghouses in the ERIC (Educational Resource Information Center) system. These digests explore topics such as spanking; kindergarten entrance age; bullying in schools; the risks of rewards; homeschooling gifted students; and standardized testing in the schools.

This paper identifies patterns in the academic and social development of six homeschooled students (with learning disabilities or giftedness) based on a seven-year longitudinal study of 100 home-schooled students. It contrasts findings on the effectiveness of home schooling with accepted expectations for special education students in the formal education system. The paper also examines parents' educational backgrounds and pedagogical approaches. For the four students with learning disabilities, the study finds that one has graduated and the others are likely to graduate and will probably continue with postsecondary education. These students became good (though late) readers and have good self-esteem. Analysis of the educational environments of the three gifted students studied (including one who was also categorized as learning disabled) found that parents focused on following the students' interests and providing a stimulating academic and social environment. For both gifted and learning disabled students, the study finds that the educational philosophies and pedagogies employed emphasize: (1) a focus on the whole child rather than primarily on the child's disability or extreme ability; (2) individualized attention; and (3) care, patience and respect for the child that leads the teaching in both the timing and content of instruction.

Many people dissatisfied with the public school system are actively seeking alternatives to public education. In the past, the only alternatives to public school were parochial or private schools or privately hired tutors. Not everyone could afford these alternatives. Over the past 20 years, another alternative to public school education has come into being, namely home schooling. This paper provides an overview of home schooling and describes a survey of home schooling parents. The overview discusses the reasons parents home school, the curriculum, socialization issues, support groups, legal issues and requirements, and advantages and disadvantages of schooling at home. A survey of 12 home schooling parents from the Bronx (New York) and Manhattan (New York) showed that most had been home schooling for over 5 years and all had a college education. Reasons for home schooling included religion, opportunity for individualization, and ability to monitor closely children's learning and personal relationships. All chose their own curriculum, and most were not concerned with lack of socialization, believing that socialization at public schools is negative and preferring to provide other social opportunities for their children, such as community group involvement. All parents found home schooling to be a tremendous amount of work, and all used a local support group. On the whole, parents agreed that their children's reactions to home schooling were positive and appreciative.

Dissatisfied with the performance of government-run schools, more and more American families have begun teaching their children at home. Estimates of the number of homeschooled children vary widely; the best estimate is 500,000 to 750,000, but some estimates range up to 1.23 million. All observers agree that the number has grown rapidly over the past 15 years. There are two historical strains of homeschooling, a religious-right thread inspired by author Raymond Moore and a countercultural-left thread inspired by John Holt. Their differences illustrate the various concerns that cause people to choose homeschooling: some want religious values in education, some worry about the crime and lack of discipline in the government schools, others are concerned with the declining quality of education, and still others just feel that children are best educated by their parents. A recent boom in the number of homeschooled students winning admission to selective colleges demonstrates both the growth and the effectiveness of homeschooling. The lesson for educational reformers is that homeschooling, with minimal government interference, has produced literate students at a fraction of the cost of any government program. Homeschooling has been largely deregulated, but further deregulation would make parents' task easier.

First defining and tracing the historical background of home schooling in the United States, this paper then researches how home schooling families are using computers and online technologies. Two separate surveys were conducted. The first was a voice-to-voice survey to determine a computer usage baseline from a population of 103 home schooling families. The second survey employed a checklist to examine posted online information for and about home schooling. Sixty-two sites with adequate content, representing 137 home schooled children, were surveyed from August to September 1996. Checklist data were compared in four different ways: (1) reasons for home schooling; (2) methods of home schooling; (3) reasons for using online services; and (4) ages of home schooled children using online services. The following conclusions were drawn: families home schooling for religious reasons were more likely to have computers, but less likely to have an online service; use of computers in home schooling families across the country was about 70% and those with online services, about 17%; all of home schooling families with online services used e-mail for social reasons and about 92% used e-mail for information; recreational use of online services made up about 68%; less than 7% of the home schoolers engaged in online classes; packaged online services were used more by religious home schoolers; larger families used generic online services; the mean ages of unschoolers were younger than those of the total population; unschoolers made up about one third of the home schooling population; and about 60% of the families with online compatible computers had an online service. Six tables and 15 figures summarize the data.
