Find Out MoreHi, I’m Meredith Nation, and I’ve been homeschooling all my life, first as a student and now as a parent of three.

I was astounded by what the children had learned, figured, read and written, without any complaint and with great enthusiasm. I suddenly realized that I had found the answer to my homeschooling dilemma.
