The research that follows in the body of this project is the product of an inductive study that examines the concepts of freedom, interdependency, and self-development Utilizing the reflections of home-schooled students and educators, an understanding of their experiences is developed as a dialogic process. In addition to narrative descriptions that explore the elements of dialogic education, the research process itself developed into a dialogical process. This project evolved into an exercise of freedom in which I, as author, rejected the structured reiteration of the experts' knowledge and engaged in a more dialogic learning process.
