Why Learning Tangent?

Learning Tangent Homeschool Magazine was created after the founder, Gail Nelson, started homeschooling her then 8 year-old twin boys. She found that, among the plethora of homeschool magazines, there was something missing: A truly inclusive magazine, willing to discuss various beliefs and ideas without the animosity that so often seems to accompany them. So her husband David, being the supportive, awesome guy that he is… told her to stop whining and create one.

Each issue is stuffed full of fabulous articles written so that YOU can homeschool more effectively. We understand that families are starting this new journey for a variety of reasons, from Common Core to a general lack of individual liberty in the school system – Learning Tangent reflects this reality.

Being an inclusive magazine means that Learning Tangent doesn’t focus on one religion or another. We’re founded on the belief that our greatest strength lies in coming together as homeschoolers because we all have one thing in common: Our children and the desire to bring them up to be intelligent, compassionate adults who function in society.

The response to Learning Tangent has been overwhelmingly positive, and that means we are growing.  We are also subscriber-supported. This means that you get what you pay for: Great articles with a minimum of ads to interfere with the reading. Find some common ground and join our growing community of homeschool families, we’re pretty sure you’ll love it.

    It’s EXACTLY what I am going to express to the local homeschooling community(ies),about your site and magazine Fundraiser. The homeschooling groups have split / branched off several times because of varied, contrasting belief systems, that I don’t want to be involved because of politics. Where who gets the brunt of it? But our kids! Maybe the written word can congeal families with the one thing we have in common – being Parents! who want the best for our kids, educationally with whole-heartedness..
    I’m on board for keeping this new magazine and site afloat.
    Thank You!!!!!

    Thanks Cedar Academy (Facebook)

    • Thank you so much!

      You know, when I started this, I was blissfully unaware of how fractious the homeschool had become over varying beliefs- I just knew in my gut that Learning Tangent was the right thing to start, and for the right reasons.

      I would be honored if you would share the links to the fundraiser and website to your members!
