Home-school culture shifting away from religious ties
Eric Peschel and his family have different reasons for home-schooling.
One of his sons was taken out of public school for religious reasons and bullying. Another is taught at home because the public education system wasn't working for Peschel. His daughter was home-schooled too, but "bonding issues" caused the Peschels to put their daughter back into public school.
‚ÄúJust seeing the difference between what is being taught in public school versus our school, it‚Äôs not even close,‚ÄĚ Peschel said. ‚ÄúThey‚Äôre not even close in the vocabulary they‚Äôre teaching, the math they‚Äôre teaching. It‚Äôs off the charts different.‚ÄĚ...
But this article is just as faulty as the one that have a ranking of Jesus. Christians will homeschool for Christian reasons. The only real overlap they have with non-believers is when they have intellectually superior children, q.v., and e.g., The education of John Stuart Mill. From a secularist point of view a great success, from a Christian point of view, an utter flop.
