If you are, or you know, an African-American family who homeschools your child(ren), please consider participating in NHERI's research. They are looking for singles or couples who have children between the ages of 9-14 that have been homeschooled all or most of their years. They are also looking for donations to help cover the cost of the research that they conduct. More information can be found here.
NHERI is an important organization because they conduct and are a clearinghouse for research related to homeschooling, the results of which are shared with the media, legislators, policy makers, and more. NHERI provides data, statistics and facts for our information based on that research. Need some facts on homeschooling? How about the question, "How many homeschool students were in the U.S. in 2010?" You can find that at NHERI. Do you wonder how well home school students do in college? NHERI has information on that study too. Without studies such as these our lawmakers would have only opinions and arguments on which to rely when making decisions on legislation regarding homeschool. It really is nice to have supporting evidence that our choice to exercise our right to homeschool our children really does have some advantages (besides being able to do school in pj's).
