Before we begin, thank you so much for your willingness to participate in my research into homeschooling families.
I deeply and sincerely appreciate your interest. In many ways this is "our" book, not "my' book--ultimately it is the story of the modern homeschool family in the Information Age.
The following survey is designed to help me capture a great deal of information in a short period of time from families around the country. All information provided will be taken into consideration in writing the text; however, given the high volume of interest that has been expressed already, I cannot guarantee that I will arrange follow-up interviews with all survey participants.
It is my intention to talk one-to-one with everyone, but that may be an impractical goal.
Now, for the survey...
As you work your way through the questions, please answer the written sections in a casual manner--much like you would use if talking to a friend via email or over coffee. Any passages selected for use in the final text will be edited for grammar and per the publisher's style sheet, but the "voice" in your responses should be your own.
By responding to the questions that follow, you're indicating that you understand your comments may appear in a forthcoming book and/or related publicity. (You will have the option to remain anonymous.)
Thank you again! If you have questions, feel free to contact me at the email address provided below.
