Why Learning Tangent?

Learning Tangent Homeschool Magazine was created after the founder, Gail Nelson, started homeschooling. She found that among the plethora of homeschool magazines, there was something missing: a magazine that welcomed all faiths into its readership. 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 that she should stop whining and create one.

The response to Learning Tangent has been overwhelmingly positive. Gail knew there was a need for an inclusive magazine, and everywhere she turned, there was yet another person saying... "Finally!"

We are growing rapidly, and are subscriber-supported. This means that you get what you pay for: Fabulous articles written so that YOU can homeschool more effectively. We know that homeschoolers 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 changing reality.

Our readers and writers are of many faiths, Christian, Catholic, Pagan, and of no particular faith. They all see the same need for common sense to be injected into the discussion, and while discussions may become heated at times, they will always seek to be respectful towards each other and their individual beliefs - this is our strength.

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!

What do you think?
