My DH and I are considering home schooling, but have plenty of time to make this decision as our oldest is just over 2 yrs old and we are patiently (HA!) awaiting baby number 2 who should arrive any day now.

 

DH is pretty much all for it, but I have my reservations and feel like I just don't have enough information to make an informed decision yet.  We are just starting to scratch the surface of researching this issue and thought I would reach out for recommendations.

 

Do any of you have any resources, particularly books or journal articles, that would show both benefit and potential disadvantages to home schooling and/or  "unschooling"?  Although I very much value the opinions and experiences of families, I am also curious to see how much research based information is out there too.

 

Thank you so much of your help!!

I really enjoyed this:  http://www.amazon.com/Homeschooling-Familys-Journey-Martine-Millman/dp/158542661X/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1335564524&sr=8-2

 

I am sure others can link you to more research style stuff. . .
