This all-encompassing work examines such timely home education issues as freedom of speech, freedom of religion, privacy rights, teacher certification requirements, and compulsory attendance statutes. Readers will find practical guidelines for effective lobbying, plus the current legislative status of every home schooling program in every U.S. state.
Students in America will spend over 14,000 seat hours in a classroom before they graduate from high school. On the other hand, most Christian children spend less than an hour a day in meaningful interaction with their parents, and only a few hours a week (at most) in church. Is it reasonable for us to assume that the Christian instruction they receive during off-hours will outweigh the thousands of hours of anti-Christian perspectives they are bombarded with by the media and the public school system? What does God say about how He expects Christians to educate their children? This book will radically challenge your paradigms and biases, but will consistently point you to the Word of God as the final answer for all of life, including education. Great resource for pastors, parents, and grandparents to understand the role of education in a Christian family. Aligns with the core philosophy of Master Books Curriculum and can be used as an apologetic for Christian education.
