Yeah, Buddy! Another way to Help Hoosiers Homeschool, brought to you by the
Indiana Home Educators'
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
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: HoosierHomeschooleremail@example.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
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.
