His Ph.D. is in science education from Oregon State University. His newest books are Home Educated and Now Adults and Worldwide Guide to Homeschooling (available online www.nheri.org). Dr. and Mrs. Ray homeschooled all of their eight children (and they have eight grandchildren), and live on a small farm in western Oregon.

 

If you have an interest in or concern about the “outcomes of home education,” think that homeschooling is bad for society (or good for society), or you are a veteran homeschooler who just needs a little morale boost, you won't want to miss this presentation. Good books and other relevant resources on child training and homeschooling will be available.
