    E-mail Author
    BRIAN D. RAY, Ph.D., is the president of the nonprofit National Home Education Research Institute (www.nheri.org) that does research and reviews and disseminates research on homeschooling. Dr. Ray has been studying the homeschooling movement for about 30 years, and is an internationally well-known scholar in this field. He served as the invited guest editor of a special issue on homeschooling of the Peabody Journal of Education (2013) and wrote one of the articles in it, entitled “Homeschooling associated with beneficial learner and societal outcomes but educators do not promote it.” Another recent publication is on his research, “Academic achievement and demographic traits of homeschool students: A nationwide study” in Academic Leadership Journal (2010). Dr. Ray’s current projects include a study of the demographics and academic achievement of Black homeschool families and students, and a nationwide study of adults who were raised attending church, with a focus on family and social backgrounds, including the form of primary/secondary education (e.g., public school, private school, homeschooling) these adults experienced. His Ph.D. is in science education from Oregon State University.
