My Own Reasons for Home Education
People home school for different reasons. For me, it’s as much about what my children don’t learn, as what they do. I want them to experience schooling without cool-kid hierarchies, without bullying, without indoctrination into the State religion of Marxism and Darwinism. I owe this to my children and to God.
And of course there are three great positive reasons behind home education: creating independent self-educators, engagement with real literature, focus upon the truly meaningful, familial closeness. I think it’s important to remind myself why I do this instead of the many other things that could take up my time.
