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.

Through MIT’s Open Courseware (referred to on the website as OCW), many of MIT’s courses are available to the self-directed or homeschooled student for free. Of course, no credit is offered toward any degree, but the access to these types of courses for free is a great way to enhance your homeschoolers learning, especially in the subject areas of Math and Science for which MIT is so well known.

This site has a long list of resources, recommended reading and a free book, “The UnCollege Manifesto”, an introduction to thinking outside the box when it comes to college and learning skills and knowledge without being in debt for the next few decades.
