Green, Nicole (2007) Homeschooling: challenging traditional views of public education. In: The Praeger handbook of education and psychology, vol. 4. Greenwood Publishing Group, Portsmouth, NH. United States, pp. 768-779. ISBN 0-313-34057-9

Abstract

With my interest in examining the narratives of families
and children in an effort to understand their experience of
distance education in Queensland, Australia, I chose to conduct an inquiry into homeschooling in Alberta, Canada.
The purpose of the research was to inquire into three families' experiences of homeschooling and explore issues of
teaching and learning by analysing and interpreting their
experiences.
