Home Schooling. Home schooling is usually provided by either ideologues or pedagogues - seeking to protect their children from outside influences or to improve their educational experience. "Home Schooling: From the Extreme to the Mainstream" places home schooling in context: providing evidence on the educational attainment, parental background and the socialization of home-taught children.
