About the Author
Mary and husband Paul began homeschooling in 1986, when their sons were ages five and eight. The Schofield children have graduated, married, and moved into their own homes. They have decent jobs and are doing fine out in “the real world” despite the fears of homeschool naysayers. Mary has been enjoying her "retirement" from active homeschooling by continuing to serve on the Board of Directors for the Christian Home Educators Association of California and by remaining active in legal and legislative issues surrounding private and home education, family freedoms, and parental rights. Mary speaks at home education conventions throughout the United States, encouraging parents to seek God’s unique plan for their families.
