Review for Setting the Records Straight
6 years ago when our family made the decision to home school, high school was tucked in the back of my mind. It seems that one day I woke up to find that I had a highschooler! Home school through high school? Then at just the right moment Lee Binz came into our life! Among the first words of her book, Setting the Records Straight, she reminded us, "You will be successful. Do not be afraid. Take it one step at a time." Lee's practical approach and her own success in homeschooling high school students into the colleges of their choice (with scholarships!) is encouraging and reassuring. In Setting the Records Straight she outlines the fundamentals for successful transcripts and home school course classes and descriptions to help guide the college bound student to the college of their choice. The chapters include answers to many of the questions that home school families ask, the very questions I myself was asking.

I am a busy mother of 6 kids ages 16 years to 5 weeks old and we began our homeschooling journey in 1999. When we first began homeschooling I never really gave homeschooling high school much thought it seemed so far away. Then I woke up one morning and realized that my oldest was in 10th grade and we had absolutely no transcript prepared for her yet. I really started to panic and felt the pressure of the high school years and on many occasions found myself wanting to quit and send her to school. I was completely overwhelmed and did not know where to even begin when it came to high school transcripts, then I found Lee Binz The HomeScholar and her book Setting the Records Straight: How to Craft Homeschool Transcripts and Course Descriptions for College Admission and Scholarships. What a blessing this book has been. I have read many other homeschooling high school books but each one left me with more questions than answers and the feeling of despair. Lee's book is the first one... read more

Setting the Records straight is a great book! New to Homeschooling I wasn't sure what to do about High School. I thought it would not be possible to homeschool the high school years and still be able to get them into college. Lee has given me the information and tools I need to create a wonderful transcript that any college would admire. My confidence level has risen. She takes the fear out of it and makes it look so simple. If you are thinking about homeschooling your child through High School, I would highly recommend this book. It is a must have!!!!
