“This beautiful little book looks into the daily routines of six conservative Christian families who homeschool their children. Employing the analytical eye of a former teacher and the balanced, thoughtful wisdom of a seasoned academic, Kunzman not only paints portraits fairly, but gently questions what he sees (much of which is deeply troubling) …. [It] may well become a classic in its field.”—Choice

“Not only a contribution to education policy debates, it’s a model of thoughtful dialogue and generous insight on a topic on which debate often yields simply visceral left-right division.”—Edward Gresser Director, Progressive Economy Project

“I am keeping Kunzman’s . . . fine book on a nearby shelf where I can refer to it regularly.”—Jay Matthews, The Washington Post
“This is the best observation of instructional processes in homeschool families that we have available, and is an essential reference for those interested in the homeschool population.”—Kurt J. Bauman, Teachers College Record
“One of the most important books on homeschooling ever written.”—Milton Gaither, author of Homeschool: An American History

“Illuminating . . . A sound piece of scholarship and one to be praised for its accessibility and the windows into the families’ worlds it provides.”—J. Gary Knowles, ENCOUNTER: Education for Meaning and Social Justice
