The homeschool edition includes a master educator account for parents, allowing YOU to assign readings and quizzes.


Milestone Documents is an online learning service for high school and undergraduate classrooms in history and related disciplines, comprised of a group of liberal arts graduates and history nerds, professional editors and writers and researchers.
