Homeschooling is an alternative to conventional schooling which may be chosen for a variety of reasons: academic, religious, social, personal, safety, philosophical, and more. Whatever initially leads parents to make this choice, homeschooling nearly always evolves into more than an alternative educational choice - it becomes a lifestyle of personal responsibility, freedom, and joy.
