Homeschool Survey

I just wanted to pass along something I received in an e-mail from my local homeschooling group for anyone that is interested.

Here is the information on Tapestry of Homeschooling (this link will take you directly to the survey), a survey by Learning is for Everyone.

There are a lot of opinions about what homeschoolers want, who homeschoolers are, and how homeschoolers teach and learn. Most of those opinions come from people who don't homeschool.

Learning is for Everyone thinks it's time homeschoolers spoke for themselves, instead of for government statistical surveys, or for the private agendas of special interest groups.Homeschoolers comprise a diverse and multifaceted community. Getting a better picture of who we are can help us support one another better, as well as better protect our collective right to direct our children's learning.

Results of this survey will be publicly available, but no personal information will be collected, nor will any information be sold or used for commercial purposes by Learning is for Everyone, Inc. (

Hard (paper) copies of the survey are available on request for distribution at a local level by local and state homeschool groups. You may return the surveys to us (email info for address) for inclusion in final results, or use them to get a better understanding of homeschooling in your area.

I plan on filling out the survey and I will be very interested to see the results when they become available. If you're interested, please check it out.


A Grammatical Disclaimer

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:
1. I like run-on sentences.
2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)

Hence, I invoke Blogger Artistic License for this blog!
