Mark and Helen Hegener are incredible individuals!  They have accomplished the amazing-by-any-measure feat of publishing in paper for 25 years straight, while homeschooling their own kids (now grown) and all the while navigating  various crises, conflicts and divisions in the homeschooling community nationally while clearing a path for all who would follow.   They are pioneers and amazing grass roots organizers and I am so proud to know them and to call them my friends.




One thought on “Home Education Magazine Celebrates 25 Years of Publishing

  1. This is just awesome.

    Public school may not traumatize every child, but it certainly has that effect on a significant percentage.

    From my experience and view, it seems a place where students, especially girls, learn what they can and cannot be, to men/boys, women/girls, academically, and to themselves (i.e. self nurturing).

    I’m not familiar with all the types of home-schooling going on, but I agree with Hillary’s infamous quote, “It takes a village to raise a child.” I would add: and school one, as well.
