This is Part 2 of Roger & Virginia interviewing Terry Neven, the Administrator of the Sundland Home School Program. Terry founded Sundland in 1981. In 2008, Terry, Sundland and their attorneys won the case before the California Supreme Court that established as law the right of caring parents to home school their children. This win established the precedent that affected home-schooling rights for all Americans.
Terry runs the “Home School Program” at www.home-schooling.org which we recommend listeners go to to feast on the available resources provided. It is one of the very best sites we’ve found to help parents help their kids get good grades. Coaching is available, as are curricula accreditations.
