Home Education Magazine
ISSN 0888-4633

Home Education Magazine is the oldest, most respected, and most informative homeschooling magazine, available via subscription and in libraries and bookstores nationwide.

Founded by a homeschooling family in 1984 and still published by those founders, every issue includes 8-10 feature articles which address the interests and the concerns of homeschooling parents. This award-winning magazine, produced by our experienced homeschooling staff for over 21 years, brings a common sense approach and reassuring support to our readers in issue after information-packed issue. Our editors, staff, and writers are veteran homeschooling parents with a passion for sharing what works, what doesn't, what to look for and what to avoid. For over two decades this magazine has published writing that has consistently helped families address their concerns about learning, socialization, curriculum, legal and political issues, and higher education. Best of all, Home Education Magazine provides you with a connection to the wider homeschooling community through newsletters, email discussion lists and forums, support group networking pages at our website and much more. In over 25 years of publishing, Home Education Magazine has become a trusted name in homeschooling, providing our subscribers with information that encourages homeschooling families and thereby strengthens the homeschooling movement.

Libraries, Newsstands and Bookstores - top of faq

Because of the considerable costs and expenses involved, bookstores and newsstand distribution have never been a primary focus for distribution of Home Education Magazine. We have, however, worked to ensure widespread distribution to public libraries all across the U.S. If your local public library does not have a subscription, please suggest they consider subscribing for their homeschooling patrons. We would be pleased to send them a sample copy for review upon request.
