Invisible Children

Case Data

Since 2013, the Homeschooling’s Invisible Children database has analyzed instances of abuse in homeschooling environments in the form of case studies. In 2024, we completed a systematic qualitative and quantitative analysis of these data. For ease of further research, we are releasing raw data files from this analysis in a series of themed batches. Files will be updated quarterly with information on new cases. Case studies, and unreleased data, are available for download upon request. 

For more information, please reach out to project lead Dr. Jonah Stewart, j.stewart[at]
