Analyze the homeschool movement by grounding it in the social movement literature, particularly that which focuses on “new social movements,” and by highlighting the recent global social and cultural changes that have occurred as developed societies have been transformed from industrial to information societies, and their cultures from modern to postmodern ones. Argues that these changes are in large part responsible for the appearance, growth, and persistence of the homeschool movement in the late twentieth century. Includes information from interviewing and interacting with homeschooling families who are members of two homeschool support groups, with dozens of homeschoolers attending several homeschool conventions and activities, and with over a hundred homeschoolers across the nation via the Internet.
