The Perrys are part of a growing home-school movement. In 1999, according to federal statistics, there were 850,000 home-schooled children in the United States. In 2003, that number rose to 1.1 million. Some estimates put the figure today as high as 2.4 million.
"It's certainly on the rise, there's no doubt about it," said Brad Haines, executive director for the Missouri-based Families for Home Education. "Exactly how fast is up to speculation."
Before their four children were born, Kim and her husband, David, decided they were going to home-school them. They had the most common reasons for doing so: They wanted an alternative to the sometimes violent culture of American public schools, and they wanted to educate their children with a Bible-centered focus.

3. Guaranteed good grades from compliant professors and teachers. These particular frat members could equate this with money when the graduate.
Many home schooling parents may know these facts about the secular universities. Good! You'll avoid sending your children to them. For those parents who haven't thought about the various problems of college life give it some consideration. College life is hard enough without being bothered by Aryan gangs.
Of course there are other bad things about some if not many these Aryan street gangs--they corrupt academia, by either having professors sympathetic to them by various types of bribes or perhaps blackmail?
I did not want to join one, but it took a lawyer with connections to let the some of the w**** professors I had to stop being subservient and to these gangs -- and especially to their alumni parents.
Ah, for you Nebraska types who want to home school look over this website,

This is how Indian Hills Community Church helps college-age people,
