One of the biggest obstacles to homeschool reform is a lack of awareness in the general public. Most people don’t know how little oversight of homeschooling exists in most states. At the same time, many are unaware that homeschooling can be used to conceal child abuse, or that some homeschooled children are educationally neglected. Letters to the editor of your local paper are a good way to draw attention to homeschooling-related issues, especially when homeschooling is in the news or a bill is up for debate in your state’s legislature. Here are some basic guidelines.
