Home Education Magazine was founded by Mark and Helen Hegener in 1984 when they realized the extraordinary need among homeschool and unschool families for support, legal news and resource information. Nearly 30 years later, Helen retired from her dedicated work on the magazine to enjoy full time grandmotherhood and new interests, leaving Mark holding the reigns.
Barb Lundgren joined the staff in 2012 as editor and together she and Mark rebuilt the business as unschooling.com, offering the magazine––Home Education Magazine––consultant support, news, support groups, legal issues, an e-newsletter, product reviews, book reviews, interviews and videos. The renewed focus for us is on child-led learning and our mantra is Supporting, Celebrating, Loving the Vibrant Life that is Unschooling.
