on home educators

"Every involved parent is a home educator." (Susan Wise Bauer and Jessie Wise, The Well-Trained Mind)
This does not mean that all parents are homeschoolers nor that homeschooling, afterschooling, and involved parenting are exactly the same. It does mean, however, that all parents have a primary role in the education of their children and are key players in directly teaching and instructing them. The roles, practices, and needs of homeschoolers and afterschoolers may differ but they overlap in many ways. I hope to highlight those commonalities and areas of mutual interest here at Enrichments.
