The Homeschool Show by NCHE is available weekly via radio, video, and podcast. You can listen on News Talk WSIC on Mondays at 8:30 am. You can watch or listen to the show below on this page. You can also watch and subscribe on the NCHE YouTube channel, or listen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and other podcast apps. 

As with everything NCHE does, our goal for the show is to help you homeschool with confidence and joy! Join us each week for information and encouragement through segments such as homeschool news, homeschool conversations (interviews), tip of the week, member questions, and the homeschool reality moment (a peek into real homeschools).

Episode 17

  • Homeschool Conversations: Matthew had a conversation with Dr. Brian Ray, founder of the National Home Education Research Institute, in which Dr. Ray discusses the relationship between homeschooling and the government. 
  • New Segment: Homeschool Basics: We will answer the question, “What is a homeschooler in NC?” This is an increasingly difficult question to answer with so many forms of education coming into the scene. Resource: NCHE Blog: What Is a Homeschooler? 
  • Homeschool Tip of The Week: Create a learning environment in your home and give you some practical tips on how you can do that.
  • Watch the new documentary Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution and support NCHE.

One of the segments of The Homeschool Show is called Homeschool Reality Moment. This segment will show video clips of parents sharing stories and experiences from their homes that are funny, moving, and inspiring. If you’d like to submit a video, please record your video horizontally (not the normal way you hold your phone). We want videos about 1 to 3 minutes long. It could be just a video of you telling a story of something that happened or a conversation you had. It could be a project idea or homeschool hack that you show through the video. Remember to keep it real. Don’t forget that this will also be shared as a podcast, so be sure you are giving narration as you show something. You can see the kinds of videos we’ve shown so far on this YouTube playlist. Send your videos to thehomeschoolshow@nche.com
