Two books from former Public School teachers
Here are a few books and some websites from two authors who were
Public School Teachers and have written books on Homeschooling.
"Family Matters: Why Homeschooling Makes Sense"
by David Guterson
This is perhaps one of the best books out there that will
convince anyone to homeschool! Available at most
bookstores and online half.com has it pretty cheap.
Don't forget your local public library!
