Knowles, J. Gary. (1991). “We’ve grown up and we’re OK”: An exploration of adults who were home-educated as students. A paper presented at the 13th National Conference of the New Zealand Association for Research in Education, November 28-December 1, 1991, Knox College, Otago University, Dunedin, New Zealand. (May cite but do not quote without permission. The adults live rural and urban areas throughout U.S. and Canada, are employed in variety of professions and occupations although many have jobs that allow for independence, flexibility, and (in some cases) creativity, exhibit wide range of political viewpoints and religious affiliations, a majority reflected a clearly positive attitude toward their home education and early family experiences, and findings suggest that these adults are not even moderately disadvantaged in ways that critics of home education claim they would be.) (Descriptors: home education, adults, long term effects, attitude.)
