Dr. Ray has been critically reviewing research in the area of home education for about 34 years. He is the founding editor of Home School Researcher, a quarterly peer-reviewed journal on home education; has published numerous articles on home education in professional journals (e.g., Peabody Journal of Education, Educational Leadership), Christianity Today, and The Old Schoolhouse magazine; has been interviewed by numerous radio, print, and television media, including two appearances on the “NBC Today Show” with presidents of the National Education Association; is a former professor of education at the undergraduate and graduate levels; is a former classroom teacher in private and public schools; is an outstanding researcher, and takes a logical and friendly approach to home education. His Ph.D. is in science education from Oregon State University. His newest books are Home Educated and Now Adults and Worldwide Guide to Homeschooling (available online www.nheri.org). Dr. and Mrs. Ray homeschooled all of their eight children (and they have eight grandchildren), and live on a small farm in western Oregon.
If you have an interest in or concern about the “outcomes of home education,” think that homeschooling is bad for society (or good for society), or you are a veteran homeschooler who just needs a little morale boost, you won't want to miss this presentation. Good books and other relevant resources on child training and homeschooling will be available.
