"Why Private Homeschooling?"

The Reasons Behind Privately Home Educating Our Children

It wasn't too long ago that homeschooling was almost nonexistent in the United States.  The public school system reigned supreme and controlled most of the education system in the country.  As time went by, the character of the nation changed and shifted further and further away from our roots - the Judeo-Christian value system.  Brave parents realized that it was the school system that would give their children their values and preparation for life if they were allowed to.  They also realized that providing a place where their children could be introduced to Christ without the ever increasing interference from secular or non-Christian sectarian ideologies would give them the best chance to meet Jesus.

Many hard-fought battles were waged for the right to home educate our children and to give them a chance to meet the Lord themselves.  In the end, homeschooling was recognized as legal throughout the country and has become widely accepted as a highly effective way to educate children.  But the state was not willing to yield these children to their parents and has responded with state-managed and regulated forms of homeschooling that directly competes with parent-directed home education.  Using educational stipends and other tactics, the state is enticing unsuspecting families back into government controlled education where state control of the curriculum is reinstated and luring our children back into secular humanist or non-Christian sectarian indoctrination through the curriculum.  What is the big deal, though?  Why should we not hand our children back to the state when they are still home educated?

This month, a panel of parents will join us to discuss what they have learned about Charter Schools - state controlled homeschools.  Through personal experiences, these parents have garnered important lessons regarding training our children in the ways of the Lord and the realities of government homeschooling.  During the meeting, we will discuss:

  • The great strengths of private Christian homeschooling,

  • Family cohesion through homeschooling ,

  • Determining the curriculum in your private homeschool,

  • The danger of state-chosen curriculum,

  • Legal issues with teaching the Bible in a Charter homeschool,

  • Overload among piles and piles of government busywork,

  • Who's really in charge of your homeschool in a charter,

  • Indoctrination of the children away from Christ in a charter, and

  • The role of Common Core in the government homeschool.

Plan to attend this meeting so that you are armed with the facts about Private Christian Homeschooling and the dangers of Charter homeschools.  Invite a friend to come (with their spouse) - they'll be glad you did!


A panel of parents will be present for discussion!
