We have always home educated our children, except for a brief foray into GradeK-1 for our eldest daughter. Having said that, let me state that I am not of the view that says ‘everyone-should-homeschool-because- it- is-the-only-way”. I am not against school, but I do think that it is one of the most important decisions you can ever make in your life… rather in your child’s life.
Over the years I have tried to be patient with every one who has genuinely asked, “Why do you homeschool?” I believe that most of us have been so deeply indoctrinated by the world that we honestly can’t see what is wrong with the public school system. But like I have written elsewhere, I do not have all my ducks in a row– I don’t have it all together.
Our lifestyle is one that we deliberated upon and prayed over and researched together and so I know the ‘why’ of what we do. I’d like to know why you do what you do. I want to ask you the reader, this question. I don’t ask in anger nor with any malice. I really would like to share in your thoughts. I promise to be gentle, as I hope you will be too.
Previously I have asked homeschoolers why they chose to homeschool… but now I’d like to hear from public schoolers.
If you are a parent and a Christian and you send your children to a public school then please take a few minutes to leave a comment.
Why do you not home educate your children? Why don’t you homeschool?
