    Homeschool.com is sponsoring call-ins with some pretty big names in the homeschooling community. Everyone is welcome.

    Here is the schedule for the interviews. Our guests are some of the top homeschooling experts in the country and we would like to have lots of homeschoolers on the calls so that our guests feel special.

    The interviews take place as a phone-in conference call. We all dial into the same number, listen to the interview, and then you can ask our guest your personal questions. It’s really a nice opportunity to personally speak with some of the leading voices in homeschooling.

    Here is the telephone number and passcode for the calls:
    Dial-in number: 1-507-726-3270
