In spite of what logic and professional educators might tell you, homeschooling works. Even parents with only a high school education and low incomes help their children excel with home-based education. Resoundingly, research shows positive outcomes from home education. Could it be that parent-led home-based education is the only deep and lasting way to free individuals, communities, and nations from control by the powerful in a society? You will see how homeschooling increases liberty for individuals, families, and nations. .
