The topic of homeschooling is often the subject of student research papers at college. While not done on the scale of studies by Brian Ray of National Home Education Research Institute, these papers are important for several reasons:
- The papers are typically shared with the class as a whole, bringing more awareness within the university/college setting of the unique features of home education.
- Sometimes professors will take a student’s work and expand the findings with a more in-depth study
- The research done is added to the larger picture of information and statistics, giving more substance to the body of data on the subject of homeschooling.
Following is a study by an Arizona student regarding how well homeschoolers make the transition to college. This is a great topic, and one that could help dispel many of the myths about homeschool students. If you are or know someone who was homeschooled prior to attending college, it would be great to have you pass this story along to your friends. It would be terrific to provide Miss Emily Leach with a large number of responses which fully reflect the many varied paths that homeschoolers take to get to college and how they deal with the changes.
