Technology Survey: Not Sponsored by HSLDA

Many homeschool families received a request to fill out a survey about technology use in the home from a student working on her doctorate at Texas Woman’s University, Jacqueline Rippy. The survey’s first question asked the family if they had heard about it through HSLDA. This made some families wonder if HSLDA was sponsoring the survey.

HSLDA occasionally asks families to participate in surveys that we believe will support high-quality research on issues of great importance to homeschool families. However, HSLDA did not sponsor the Rippy survey or ask its members to participate in it.

When we contacted Ms. Rippy, she promptly responded. The current version of the survey does not mention HSLDA.
