Famous Homeschoolers

 - by admin

The lovely thing about browsing through very informative homeschooling websites is that you chance upon interesting facts such as this. Although we have been told time and again that there are a good number of homeschoolers who are actually known for their worthwhile contribution in our society, it is another thing to actually see those names in homeschooling websites, even in print. Gives me a sense of pride somehow for having chosen to homeschool our child.
