Between women: homeschooling and profession
Based on a qualitative research held in Portugal on families who practice homeschooling, the author sets forth the different approaches that mothers weave as managers of familiar plans. Taking homes as micro-organizations, between the rational bureaucracy and anarchic models, the author argues that mothers take a borderless career and tend to abandon the idea of career bounded by organizational boundaries. During the period of compulsory schooling of their children, these women tend to do self-management of their self-employment as a strategy to achieve a better balance between the homeschooling of their children and work.
