Hybrid Homeschooling: A Guide to the Future of Education

Hybrid homeschoolers attend traditional classes in a brick-and-mortar school for some part of the week and homeschool for the rest of the week. This book—by a leading hybrid homeschooling researcher—dives deep into the concept in theory and practice. In it, you’ll find information about the history of hybrid homeschooling, the different types and the policies that can help or hurt it. At the heart of the book are the actual family stories that show how hybrid homeschooling can work in real life.
