Jeremy Alder from has written an article about homeschoolers entitled The World’s 15 Most Extraordinary Homeschoolers. From relatively unknown figures like the “mathematical origamist” Erik Demaine and disability rights activist and artist Sunaura Taylor, to global sports and entertainment superstars such as football quarterback Tim Tebow and the teen pop group The Jonas Brothers (including a link to’s recent interview with their mother!), the homeschoolers listed here include “geniuses and jocks, conservatives and progressives, fundamentalists and hippies, scientists and artists. They are rural and urban, American and international, abled and disabled, black, white, Asian and multiracial.”

“What all of the people on this list have in common is some level of participation in the homeschooling movement, ranging from a single year in the case of Condoleeza Rice, to the majority or entirety of their school career, as is the case with the majority of those listed.  Enjoy! And don’t forget to pass it along to your friends and family, especially those who need their assumptions about homeschoolers and homeschooling shaken up a little.”

And remember, fun learning is forever learning!
