Cathy Duffy's Bio:
Cathy Duffy is best known as a curriculum specialist. As the author of the two-volume Christian Home Educators' Curriculum Manual (Elementary Grades and Junior/Senior High) she has researched curriculum and methodology for all subjects and all grade levels. Her next book will narrow her recommendations down to the Top 100 Picks for Homeschooling Curriculum. Cathy began educating her three sons at home in 1982 and continued all the way through high school. In addition to teaching her own sons, she has taught numerous group classes for home educated students and church groups. Her extensive research and experience has made Cathy a popular speaker at home education conferences around the world as well as a leader in the home education movement. In addition, Cathy has taken a broader interest in educational issues, authoring the book Government Nannies: The Cradle-to-Grave Agenda of Goals 2000 and Outcome-Based Education to address problems with the current direction of “educational reform.” Concerns about government schooling prompted Cathy to get involved with the Children’s Scholarship Fund in 1998, piloting a $15 million scholarship program in Los Angeles. That program helped children from low income families attend private and home schools.

Articles authored by Cathy Duffy on a wide range of topics have appeared in The Teaching Home, Practical Homeschooling, Christian Retailing, The Parent Educator, ParentLife, Family Resources, The Canadian Home Educator, The Christian Conscience, Homefires, Christian Home Education News, Ideas on Liberty, and many other publications.
