Purchase Class Dismissed Film on DVD

Looking to understand what it takes to homeschool, or what homeschooling actually looks like? There's a movie for that. Class Dismissed follows a family in L.A. that pulls their two kids out of school and takes their education into their own hands. HSC highly recommends both new and long-time homeschoolers check it out.

Homeschooling is only accessible because of the
voices that speak up for it. If you don't, who will?

HSC protects your right to make the educational choices that are best for your family.
