Changes in Why People Homeschool

Homeschool leader Melissa Robb has noticed that the reason people homeschool has changed.  Do you notice a difference in your area, too?

In this short podcast episode (11 minutes)  Carol Topp, the HomeschoolCPA, interviews homeschool leader Melissa Robb from Rhode Island.

Melissa’s organization, ENRICH, hosts monthly information meeting for people interested in homeschooling. She discusses what she has seen:

  • Parents now think about homeschooling when their children are infants or preschoolers
  • Many parents are homeschooling to avoid a bad situation
  • Some students may need to de-school or unschool
  • Information sessions deliver more than information-they bring hope and confidence to parents considering homeschooling
  • Over-compliance with legal requirements can be a problem 

In the podcast, Carol mentioned the I Am a Homeschool Group Leader Facebook Group. It is a closed group (meaning you have to request to join) of 600 homeschool leaders from across the USA. You can join us here:
