Charting Your Own Course

Children have rights.
Parents have responsibilities.

The Coalition for Responsible Home Education empowers homeschooled children by educating the public and advocating for child-centered, evidence-based policy and practices for families and professionals. We believe homeschooling can provide a positive, empowering education. We conduct research, advocate for evidence-based homeschooling policy, and develop resources that help parents and children succeed. We are a child advocacy nonprofit founded and run by individuals who were homeschooled, focused on the rights of children who are homeschooled.

What we do

We advocate.

We believe homeschooling policy should be evidence-based, reasonable, and consistent—and that homeschooling should never be used as a cover for child abuse or educational neglect.

We develop resources.

We believe good homeschooling is child-centered and evidence-based, and prepares children for an open future. We provide resources for home educators and homeschool alumni.

We conduct research.

We believe that good research promotes good homeschooling. We conduct research on homeschooling policies, experiences, and outcomes to inform parents and policymakers.

Voices for Reform

At CRHE, we draw on our experiences being homeschooled as children to advocate for homeschooled children today. We believe in empowering homeschooled children and in creating safeguards and supports to prepare children for an open future.
