Profound shift in kind of families who are home schooling
Parents who home-school children increasingly are white, wealthy and well-educated — and their numbers have nearly doubled in a decade, a new federal government report says.

What else has nearly doubled? The percentage of girls who are home-schooled. They now outnumber home-schooled girls by a wide margin.

As of spring 2007, an estimated 1.5 million, or 2.9% of all school-age children in the USA, were home-schooled, up from 1.7% in 1999.

I wonder why this is surprising? One just hope they are home schooling for the right reasons, All too many Evangelicals are continually grasping for social/economic brass ring of success, but let's hope it's not at the sacrifice of their Christianity. Anyway, Backup of On a Christian Mission to the Top: Evangelicals Set Their Sights on the Ivy League. I have a Masters degree which the most of the hoi polloi don't. It had some personal benefits, but in no way does it make me superior to a Christian that doesn't have money or advanced degrees. What Do You Treasure?

Christian schools are a good alternative, but for those in Nebraska that want to home school, they should contact, those who are Encouraging and supporting Christian families who educate their children at home.

Homeschooling is the only Biblical schooling for your child.

Children are easily persuaded and need their Christian parents there guiding them.

Sending them to an ungodly school where they are taught unbiblical things would be detrimental. Also, gym class. Just because they are with the same sex doesn't mean it is right for them to reveal their nakedness to others.

Look up Michael Slattery and Marty Tate.
and listen to their sermons on this issue.

The notion that evil is out there and we must protect our children from it is not a notion. It is an undeniable fact.

Tipster: Do you have children? If so, do you believe that God would have you send them into a Godless institution for training that basically denies He exists and tries in every way imaginable to seperate their affections from Him and your family?

Where do you get the idea that children as young as 5 or 6 years old are supposed to be missionaries? That is absurd. The early years are for training and for the children of Christians they are for training in Godliness. You cannot find that in a government school. In fact, what you find is just the opposite. United States government schools have become anti-Christ.

Nobody in my kids' homeschool learned evolution. Nobody learned that living a life of sodomy and calling it a 'lifestyle' is normal or acceptable. Nobody handed my kids a condom & encouraged them to have at it. Nobody taught them revisionist history. Nobody refused to teach them the Bible and Biblical character qualities. There has never been a drug problem in my living room, no students sodomizing each other, absolutely no danger of being shot and I've never met a homeschooler on Ritalin.

I agree with Johnny - God's word tells us not to hide our light under a bushel, not to closet ourselves away in holy huddles. Homeschooling perpetuates the notion that the evil is out there and we must protect our children from it. What our children need is not protection from the world but a new heart as the problem for each one of us is primarily internal. The gospel gives us a new heart and God's Spirit to live godly attractive lives amongst the people of the world.

Because teaching them and training them at home is exactly what prepares them to 'engage with their peers in later life".

How are you (or I), as a responsible parent, going to train a child in the way he should go if he is being inundated and brainwashed all day every day for most of his young life by a humanistic, secular institutiion that is openly antagonistic and hostile to God and the Scriptures? (I'm referring to American schools but from what I understand Ireland is getting bad, too).

If you are a non-believer and don't care about your children's souls, by all means-send them into the government schools. That's a great place for them as long as they don't get shot.

If you are a Christian, however, and really do care about your children, your children have absolutely no business in a godless government school. Why would you send them there?

Why would Christians withdraw their children from secular schools where they can be salt and light? Surely homeschooling is setting an unhealthy model for engagement in those we would like to see engage with their peers in later life ??

Well, John, as long as it isn't Catholic Parochial education,

"Morally, this book will show the high rate of crime and sin among Roman Catholics everywhere, and particularly in the United States. It will also demonstrate that this immorality is not in spite of Catholic education and training, but directly because of it." excerpt from, Should Roman Catholicism really be classified as a Christian religion? -- No.

I am a firm believer in homeschooling education as well as private school education. The public school system should be flushed right into Hell.

Homeschooling, in many cases, is a form of a la carte private schooling. Some classes are taught in the home and some classes are taught through tutors, special programs, educational institutions, co-ops, online classes, guided independent study, etc. These alternate channels of instructional delivery often become increasingly common as the student gets older and the coursework becomes more difficult. Many choose homeschooling for the flexibility and ability to tailor and customize that it provides. Freedom to fulfill the biblical mandates of Deuteronomy 6 and Ephesians 6 is another good reason to homeschool.

Huh? "The percentage of girls who are home-schooled. They now outnumber home-schooled girls by a wide margin." The article is already corrected, btw.
