Abstract The media creates an image of homeschoolers as a backward-looking dogmatic group who are withdrawing from mainstream society, but this is far from the truth. Indeed, homeschoolers are often progressive, pragmatic, highly sociable, and enthusiastic e-learning families. This article describes the path many parents have taken after placing their children in traditional schools, becoming dissatisfied, and then shifting to homeschooling as an 'accidental' change in direction.
