Martin and Carolyn Forte are the founders and owners of Excellence in Education (EIE) ISP and Resource Center in Monrovia, California, a suburb of Los Angeles.  For over 25 years, they have been involved in homeschooling.

Carolyn is a former classroom teacher and the mother of two grown homeschooled daughters. She has developed a complete curriculum using only games that is gaining popularity with homeschoolers and non-homeschoolers alike, as it function beautifully as a supplement to other materials or as a stand-alone teaching program.

Martin has served on the board of the California Homeschool Network and has written extensively about the basic rights of parents to teach their children. He was heavily involved with homeschooling the couple’s grown daughters and has a unique vantage point, owning and operating EIE on a daily basis, with Carolyn. Both of the Fortes have much insight to offer parents who have questions and/or concerns about their own homeschooling experience.
