Six years in the making, my book Homeschool: An American Historywill become available June 24. Here’s the publisher’s blurb:
“This is a lively account of one of the most important and overlooked themes in American education. Beginning in the colonial period and working to the present, Gaither describes in rich detail how the home has been used as the base for education of all kinds.
