The Hoosier Homeschooler


2007 - Volume 1

Yeah, Buddy! Another way to Help Hoosiers Homeschool, brought to you by the Indiana Home Educators' Network

It's not what you're thinking! Really!

What we're planning with The Hoosier Homeschooler should be a nice change of pace. We hope.

Slower and more thoughtful than what people are used to lately... we would like to showcase good writing, rather than a plethora of random thoughts out of context.

We have a hunch that you want to read thoughtful, intense, creative ideas from the minds of real Hoosier Homeschoolers; parents who maybe have a lot of advice to share, but don't want to get overly involved in the technical aspects of publishing one's words for mass consumption.

Yeah... we're talking about blogging. And we're betting you want to read something different, because we sure want to read something different.

So get it out of your mind. This isn't just another blog. We will be hand publishing (so to speak) on an irregular basis, as things come in.

Part journal, part digest, part notebook, part magazine... maybe even part gallery. I guess we'll just have to see what happens as we grow. What is certain -- we will continue to believe in "Helping Hoosiers Homeschool."

This hand crafted, quality web publication will hopefully be the premier, must have subscription for homeschoolers throughout Indiana.

What do I do now?

Well... to get the notices of new material posted to the web site, you should subscribe to the HoosierHomeschooler YahooGroup. We'll use this broadcast e-list to let diehard subscribers know when new material is out and up on the web site. And for the non-surfers among you, we'll be posting the entire text of our articles through the e-list.

What if I want to write for HoosierHomeschooler?

Want to get in on this? Absolutely possible!

Just write to the list owner address: HoosierHomeschooler-owner@yahoogroups.com or directly to the editor, Ben Bennett, and ask about submitting an essay, a good e-list post you came across or even wrote... anything you think would be of value to more than a hand full of Hoosier Homeschoolers. We'll see if we can get it out there: From the heart of Hoosier Homeschoolers.

Here's to good writing, and thoughtful reading!

Post #1.000: What can libraries do for homeschoolers... and likewise? - Libraries want to know what they can do to attract more homeschoolers. Ben Bennett comes up with a novel idea: Read some books!

Post #1.001: The Final Word: Who Needs to Know What, When? - In Indiana, the debate on the necessity of filling out a piece of paper, reporting the enrollment of your homeschooled children is endless. Until now. Jane Casey gives her final word on the matter.

Post #1.002: Ignorance of the Law - Still No Excuse - How many times a year, do we hear stories on the IndianaHomeschoolers list that school officials (government employees) are making statements that are not backed up by the law? Deb Harbeson wonders why the people who should know homeschooling law, don't.

Post #1.003: Going to Public School Isn't About Education, It's About Attendance - Writing what we all know inside, Ben Bennett lays out why compulsory schooling has nothing to do with education.

Homeschooling is parenting first and educating second. If people could only see that homeschooling is a valid and reasonable first choice, it would not become a last resort.
