The Modern Christian Home School
Education (part 36)
I could spend much time commending the good things I have seen over the last 25 years, both generally and particularly in the modern home school. Many books are available that laud the home school and provide some excellent instruction on how to take on and accomplish this noble task. In most cases, Christian home schoolers are well-intentioned parents who seek to honor God in the education of their children. They take seriously the call from God to assume the responsibility of educating their children. They seek to protect their children from a culture that is increasingly hostile to our faith. I am thankful for all the personal sacrifices that so many of these parents, especially moms, have made in this pursuit. However, it is also important to speak to some of the failures in the home school movement. We must all be willing to look at ourselves with a critical eye and be prepared to grow and improve.
