If you’re thinking about homeschooling, you no doubt have many questions. Google is the natural first stop for anyone looking for information. While it is an invaluable tool, I find that Google is not the best way to get the information you need about homeschooling because oh my gosh, where to start? There’s another much more helpful search tool – Pinterest. In order to help you, I’ve created 49 home education Pinterest boards that are each dedicated to a specific homeschool topic.
