|Dear Christian parents:
What do homeschool graduates think of their parents commitment to raising them with a solid Christian worldview education and training?
Joshua Carden, Esq. an Attorney for the Alliance Defense Fund, said this:
"While I was homeschooled, my parents taught me the importance of being a hard worker and a self-starter, which helped me build strong study habits. These traits are crucial for doing well in college and surviving the rigorous demands of law school."
We hope our articles this month and the Easy to Homeschool Resource List will encourage you to homeschool your children for the Lord. I would also like to encourage you to subscribe to a homeschool magazine. We have listed a few for you under the Quick Links section.
If our ministry can help you with homeschooling information, please do not hesitate to contact us. Please consider forwarding this newsletter to your friends and family.
|He Requires So Little of Us
If we allow ourselves, we can get pretty wrapped up in thinking that homeschooling is just too big of a job. There's finding the right textbooks, dealing with different learning styles, choosing methods, and so on. It's easy to think that we are responsible for everything. Have you ever thought that? I have.
Recall for a moment the story of Moses and the parting of the Red Sea. There Moses was, standing at the sea's edge. A multitude of people-perhaps numbering in the millions-had followed him. To make matters worse, Pharaoh's army was closing in.
Why Public Education Does Not Work
An analysis by David and Kim d'Escoto
- Fifteen percent of recent graduates of urban high schools read at less than sixth grade level. One million teenage children cannot read above the third grade level.
- According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, 93 percent of all teenagers have some experience with alcohol. Almost two-thirds of all American young people try illicit drugs before they finish high school.
- "Every day, 8,000 teenagers in the United States become infected by a sexually transmitted disease. This year, nearly 3 million teens will become infected."
- According to one recent study "researchers say between 70 to 88 percent of Christian teens From Christian families are leaving the church by their second year in college"
