We know the challenges that come with home education. Finding resources can be hard. For some, the choice to homeschool is difficult and overwhelming. It can also be complicated by worries about the roles and rights of homeschooling parents. 

To help, we’ve put together this resource page. For example, you’ll find links to more reading about homeschooling.

In addition to NSHEA, there are many other excellent resources. Don’t leave your questions unanswered. Find the links below. Finally, reach out if you have more questions. We’re happy to help!
