Because it isn’t always easy for pagans and others who don’t fit the Christian Coalition stereotypes to find homeschooling resources and support groups, I’ve collected a list of links to specifically for us. Some of these are local to Georgia or the Atlanta area, but most are not. There are other sites with far more comprehensive lists of links for general homeschoolers, and I’m not going to try to reproduce them. One of my favorites is Jon’s Homeschool Resource Page.
Creative Home Educators is a homeschooling support group that welcomes all people in Georgia interested in home education (homeschoolers, afterschoolers, unschoolers, distance learners, etc.) and earth-centered or pagan traditions. UUs, Quakers, and people from other liberal religious traditions are welcome as well. The group is intended to be a peaceful forum, and members are expected be respect the diversity of other’s beliefs. We have regular play dates, co-ops, and field trips.
- The Home Education Information Resource maintains comprehensive listings of support groups in Georgia as well as excellent information regarding current and proposed legislation affecting homeschoolers.
- Atlanta Alternative Education Network is an inclusive support group for families in the Atlanta area.
- National Home Education Network—a relatively new inclusive national group
- Home Education Magazine is the only homeschooling magazine I’ve actually had in my hands so far that does not have a conservative Christian focus.
- Learn in Freedom!
- The Eclectic Homeschool Online
- HUUmans at Home is “for homelearning Unitarian Universalists and kindred spirits”
- HUUH-L Archives has some posts and resources suggested on a mailing list for UU homeschoolers.
- Sacred Grove Academy—pagan umbrella school for Alabama homeschoolers
- Alternative Education Resource Organization
- Autodidact Press
This section contains information that I think all home educators must know:
- Need I Join the HSLDA?
- Homeschooling Freedoms at Risk
- The Ravage of Home Education Through Exclusion By Religion—white paper by Dr. Raymond Moore
