More Homeschool Blogs for Back-to-School Season
Welcome to Blog Profiles! Each week, we select a topic and handful of blogs that do a great job contributing to the conversation. We’re adding on to our previous list with even more homeschool blogs. Do you have a blog that deserves recognition? Tweet our writers at @BeyondBylines.
Like many people in recent years, I was thrown into a new work-from-home lifestyle. While that wasn’t much of an issue, the real struggle was becoming a stay-at-home dad and homeschool teacher while still having to somehow put in a solid 40 hours of work from my home office.
I am fortunate enough to have a background in education so I feel comfortable with what I’m doing. But not everyone is as fortunate, so we’ve put together a shortlist of homeschool blogs that can help anyone that has decided to continue educating from their home.
Make sure to check out Part One of the homeschool blog series for even more sites to visit for help.
Homeschool.com is an online community of individuals that crowdsource solutions, resources, and suggestions on how to successfully homeschool one’s child or children.
It’s a great resource for anyone new to homeschooling — in addition to those who’ve been doing it for years. I find the site incredibly helpful and credible as the community has been doing this since before the global pandemic. You can count on their decades of experience to get you through the school year with your children at home.

Confessions of a Homeschooler is one of my favorite homeschooling blogs. The author, Erica Arndt, has been through it herself and she provides supplemental materials that are easily printable at home.
I have a third grader and sixth grader so we’ll be on different schedules and levels with each child. Confessions of a Homeschooler provides any parent with the materials they need to be successful.
NWEA is a not-for-profit based in the Pacific Northwest with a mission is to help measure student success and proficiency to assist in developing childhood learning. “Many students have been negatively impacted by school closures, and we’re here to help educators, parents, and students as they navigate on-site or remote learning,” the site says.
The blog is one of my personal favorites because the information is based on in-depth research by a team of writers that take the whole child into consideration.
A couple great reads: Student achievement in 2021-22: Cause for hope and continued urgency; The ultimate back-to-school reader: 35 posts full of strategies and ideas for educators; and New research indicates targeted, personalized math instruction can fuel math gains.

Education Week is a news organization that examines a variety of education topics through an unbiased lens. It’s a great source of news on what’s happening in education nationally as well as resources and advice for educators and families.
Parents can trust that the perspective Education Week is providing will educate them but won’t force an opinion upon them.
