A little over 2.2 million children are educated at home, cites the National Home Education Research Institute.

    "Very informational"

    As someone who homeschooled my own children, I found this very informational. For anyone trying to decide on whether or not to homeschool, this is a great starting point. As is said in the book, you don't have to know everything, you just need to be able to find what you need. The only thing not mentioned here are home schools and charter homeschools. Homeschooling resources and environments vary. I was lucky enough to live in an area full of homeschooling resources. There are multiple homeschooling networks that are more than happy to answer any questions. This is where I'd start. But, this little guide is great to get you pointed in the right direction.
