Thanks to a small but fierce group, home schooling is barely regulated in much of the U.S. That means child neglect—and even abuse—is falling through the cracks.

The Frightening Power of the Home-Schooling Lobby

Comments from the Judges:

“This was an incredibly interesting look into the world of home-schooling, something that’s not often written about, especially in such detail. It was incredibly thorough.”

“A well-researched and clearly written exploration of the influence of home-schooling lobbying groups on legislation.”
