A Bridge Between the Home and School: Establishing a Partnership Between Concordia University and the Homeschooling Community
Date of Award
Master of Arts in Education
This paper was designed to provide background information on the growing homeschooling movement. It is hoped that the information and statistics reviewed here will be a springboard for a partnership between homeschoolers, homeschooling organizations, and Concordia University. Specifically, this paper provides history on the homeschooling movement, describes statistically who homeschoolers are, discusses the reasons families choose homeschooling, offers profiles of several homeschooling families, and reviews researchers' findings on the socialization level and academic achievement of children who have been homeschooled. It is hoped that these findings will be used as support for the recruitment of homeschooled children into colleges, specifically Concordia University, which is the focus of this project.
