Hamlin Researches Homeschooling and Cultural Capital

Hamlin Researches Homeschooled Children and Cultural Capital Opportunities

Dan Hamlin

Daniel Hamlin, assistant professor in the Jeannine Rainbolt College of Education at OU-Tulsa, published an article, “Do Homeschooled Students Lack Opportunities to Acquire Cultural Capital? Evidence from a Nationally Representative Survey of American Households,” in the Peabody Journal of Education.


In the article, Hamlin looks at the valuable experiences schools may create for children to acquire cultural capital, and the concern homeschooled children may be deprived of these opportunities. Descriptive results indicated that while formal instruction in music, arts, literature and foreign language is lacking in nearly 40% of homeschool households, homeschool families report statistically higher participation in cultural and family activities.


Hamlin is an assistant professor of educational leadership and policies studies. His research examines the effects of school governance on non-tested outcomes with an emphasis on school climate, parental involvement and student safety.
