One of my favorite parts of the VaHomeschoolers Conference is getting to meet so many homeschoolers who have just started out on their journey. I often have folks who come up after my Beginning Homeschooling session to ask me questions, usually wanting to further clarify something I said or about something specific to their personal situation.

I knew at some point that something would get me back to blogging. Nothing like a conference to jumpstart my creative energy and desire to talk.
Or at least that is what they tell me. VaHomeschoolers’ Celeste Land was on the Kojo Nnamdo radio show titled “Homeschooling Goes Mainstream”. They discussed the history of homeschooling as well as the diversity of the homeschooling community.
The Washington Post recently ran an article on the increasing popularity of homeschooling by Muslims. It profiled Priscilla, a good friend of mine and her beautiful family. Unfortunately, the way it was written/edited, it also played into the stereotype of the “isolated religious homeschooler” trying to keep their kids away from negative influences. Which, if you know Priscilla (and many of the other homeschool families profiled) you would know is the farthest thing from the truth. Not only is she active in the homeschooling community, but also in the interfaith community.
