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.
From the website: Study guides are offered for free by GradeSaver on novels, plays, poems and films ranging from Animal Farm to Yonnondio: From the Thirties. Each study guide includes essays, an in-depth chapter-by-chapter summary and analysis, character list, theme list, historical context, author biography and quiz. Study guides are available in PDF format. We have literature essays associated with our study guides that are unique and only available through GradeSaver. Each academic essay has been edited and approved by our editors. Many essays are “A” papers that have been written by students from Ivy League colleges.
This site also provides essay editing services, which might be useful for college-bound students who need to write an essay as part of their college entrant requirements.
