Happy Father’s Day! We hope this weekend offers rest, recreation, and good times (and food) with family or friends for all our homeschool dads.
Whether you’re the primary educator in your household or your wife’s supporter in teaching your child, we want to share two resources for homeschool dads to encourage you on your homeschooling journey.
Resources for Homeschool Dads
Robert Bortins, CEO of Classical Conversations and a homeschool dad, offers some insights through these two resources below for fellow fathers leading their children’s educations.
A Dad’s Guide to Classical Education
Several years ago, Robert wrote a brief guide aimed at equipping new homeschool dads with the basics of classical education and homeschooling.
While both these topics are broad and — at least in the case of classical education — typically shrouded in mystery, Robert addresses both in a way that’s digestible and easy to understand. Even if your wife is the primary educator in your household, it’s important to understand both classical education and homeschooling to be able to better support her as she teaches your child, especially when homeschooling becomes tough.

Words of Wisdom from a Homeschool Dad with Mike Donnelly
In case you haven’t heard, we released a brand-new podcast this year called Refining Rhetoric with Robert Bortins. In the seventh episode, Robert talks with Mike Donnelly, Director of Global Outreach and Senior Counsel at HSLDA. In the episode, amidst chatting about the origins and future of HSLDA, Robert and Mike discuss how homeschool dads can stay involved in their children’s education, whether they are working full-time or are the primary parent-teacher in the home.
This inspiring conversation will show you the far-extending benefits of homeschooling and how you can get involved not only in your own child’s education, but in the larger homeschool movement as a whole.
Happy Father’s Day!
Homeschool dads bear a great responsibility. You wife looks to you for support. Your child looks to you as an example. Whatever your involvement is in your child’s education, you do have a part in this homeschooling journey, walking right alongside the rest of your family.
We hope these two resources for homeschool dads encourage you to keep leading your family well. And we wish you a blessed Father’s Day this weekend!
