A directory of ‘real’ educational resources for the liberty-minded household. This is a community driven directory, however Parents For Liberty has given each listing its stamp of approval. We encourage you to contribute, it’s free!
We use the term ‘school’ merely because this is a common expression. Home education directory is a more accurate description of this resource.
Our goal is to create the most useful home education directory on the internet.
Online classes are an excellent fit for many homeschooling families. Older students who are able to work independently tend to do great in this setting, whether working on a single course here and there or completing their entire high school curriculum online.
K12 is a great resource for parents looking to supplement their teaching with online classes. If the thought of teaching Algebra is giving you nightmares, online classes might work for your family. If you click on the link in the upper-right hand corner to Request Information, they will send you a free information kit for your review.

This page is found in the Homeschooling section of about.com for those familiar with the site. Here you will find links to unit studies on each of the 50 states. Each one contains lessons in Geography as well as facts about each state. These make a very nice, complete book of the United States if you do all 50 and put them together in a binder.
