(MARKETWATCH) — Practical Homeschooling magazine is entering its 20th year of publication. To celebrate, they are giving away 20,000 copies of their magazine this year.

“With public schools on the decline and fewer families able to afford private-school tuition, it’s no surprise that homeschooling is on the rise,” said Practical Homeschooling publisher Mary Pride. “So we’re making it easy for families considering homeschooling to get a taste of what homeschooling is all about.”

Mary Pride knows what new and veteran homeschoolers need. A mother of 9 homeschool graduates, she literally “wrote the book” on homeschooling over 25 years ago, with the 1986 publication of her bestselling Big Book of Home Learning.

The Big Book was the first ever mass-market homeschooling how-to book. Recognized as a groundbreaking achievement, it won both the ECPA Gold Medallion and Silver Angel awards, and went into multiple printings and editions.
