Build Relationships



President of the National Home Education Research Institute, former private and public school educator, and Homeschool Father of Eight Children

Dr. Brian D. Ray has been critically reviewing research in the area of home education for 37 years. He is the founding editor of Home School Researcher, a quarterly peer-reviewed journal on home education. He has published numerous articles on home education in professional journals (e.g., Peabody Journal of Education, Educational Leadership), Christianity Today, and The Old Schoolhouse magazine; has been interviewed by numerous radio, print, and television media, including two appearances on the “NBC Today Show” with presidents of the National Education Association. Dr. Ray is a former professor of education at the undergraduate and graduate levels, is a former classroom teacher in private and public schools; and takes a logical and friendly approach to home education.


His Ph.D. is in science education from Oregon State University. His newest books are Home Educated and Now Adults and Worldwide Guide to Homeschooling. Dr. and Mrs. Ray homeschooled all of their eight children (and they have eleven grandchildren), and live on a small farm in western Oregon.

Ban Homeschooling, Put a Mask On, and Bow to the State
-Or-  Flourish in Homeschooling?

Tighten your belts as Dr. Ray hits this topic hard, fast, and with some statistics and a bit of humor.

Dr. Ray will help you carefully consider the following:

  • Certain professors want to ban homeschooling

  • Certain scholars claim the State has first and final say over children

  • Whatever! Schooling is just “a choice”!

  • One church pastor graduate of homeschooling claimed, “It is not a moral issue whether you choose public schools, private schools, or homeschooling.” 

  • Why not have your kids be a part of the 87% in State/public schools? 

  • Why not stick them in a Muslim madrasa or a New Age child-garden? 

  • What does the research say?

There will be plenty of time for Q&A, discussion and even debate.
