I think she’ll likely be disappointed.

I am a reporter, seeking information about tax beaks, state or federal, that may be available to home school families (such as tax credits, deductions or Coverdell accounts) for use in an article on parent-directed education.

Appreciate any literature, links, expert contacts, or other information you can provide on that topic, preferably in the next few days and preferably by e-mail.

Particularly interested in hearing from anyone who knows of a family that has used such tax breaks to help defray the cost of hiring a tutor for a child who does not attend school.

I have written many articles on all sorts of subjects, including a few on education, many of which you can find by googling me at www.google.com. My last story was “Turning to Tutors, Instead of Schools,” The New York Times (Sunday Oct. 26, 2003, Money & Business section 3, p. BU 5), available at www.nytimes.com.

“parent-directed education” what does that mean?
no bias there, right?

I have seen the term “Parent-directed education” used in place of homeschooling.

I was wondering what information you have found out on homeschool tax breaks. I live in the Kansas City, MO area. Please e-mail me and let me know.
Thank you.
