Exploratory study of public school administrators' perceptions regarding public school education advanced by homeschool parents

Kilgore, Kenneth E.
Scope and Method of Study: Qualitative Research using 15 Public School Administrators representing three public school systems in Oklahoma County. The administrators will divide into 3 Focus Group sessions and discuss 13 open-ended discussion questions about the allegations made against public schools by homeschool parents.
Findings and Conclusions: Public School Administrators must talk more about the positive things that are happening in public schools-things that seldom are mentioned by the media. It is all but impossible to raise children in a world completely surrounded by only homeschoolers and homeschool enthusiasts. The public is all around us and cannot be completely avoided.
