Home Education Magazine is one of the oldest and best publications aimed specifically at the homeschooling community. Founded 28 years ago by Helen and Mark Hegener, the bi-monthly has always offered support and encouragement to all homeschooling families, regardless of their educational philosophy.
In the past couple years a number of challenges has caused the magazine to miss several issues. But it looks like things are getting back on track. According to a blog post on the HEM website, the September-October issue reflects an effort to update HEM and make it relevant to a new generation of homeschooling families -- including parents who were homeschooled themselves. Mark Hegener has taken over as both editor and publisher. Here's how he describes the magazine's facelift:
New writers, young writers, bold, risk-taking, fresh ideas, provocative and thoughtful discourse, radical and powerful support for the unlimited ways we homeschool our children, teens... and create vital and fully alive ways of living as families.
As a former HEM columnist, I'm glad to see the magazine get back on its feet. You can check out a sample issue on its website, homeedmag.com.
