Since 1984 Home Education Magazine has been the acknowledged leader in providing homeschooling news, information about homeschooling and resources for homeschoolers. With a unique perspective and a commitment to honor the broad diversity of the homeschool community, Home Education Magazine and The HEM Network provide access to and involvement with the homeschooling movement in this country and around the world.

Long time readers will find this site unfamiliar, while first time browsers will probably not notice the changes. All of the content, from our blogs to the selected articles and columns in the HEM Archives, are still here. What is different is a new server and a new Digital Format for HEM subscribers. Please note, the timing of this move was not of our choosing, and we appreciate your understanding as we refine our presentation and your access.

Home Education Magazine is much more than just a magazine!
