5 Blogs for Homeschooling Families

Blog 2.1If you look at the numbers, more and more families are choosing to homeschool their children. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, as of 2007, there were 1.5 million students in homeschool. Religion seems to be a major factor for parents choosing to homeschool their kids, as more than a third of homeschooling parents say they do so to provide religious or moral instruction. It seems to be working. According to Exploring Homeschooling, 94 percent of students who graduate from homeschool keep their faith, and 93 percent continue to attend church after their high school years.

Because of this growing trend, we wanted to hear from those who homeschool, and we asked them why they've chosen this method of education for their kids. On our Facebook page we posed the question "I homeschool because I…" and asked our friends to fill in the blank. Tifaine Hash says, "I am scared what kind of damage public schools will do to my children." Emily Griffith Anderson says, "I believe it's part of God's plan for my children, me, and those around us." Monica Letoto Merrifield fills in the blank, "(I)…believe God has that as part of our Deuteronomy 6 mandate right now." Feel free to keep the conversation going on Facebook.

We are based in Australia and have many homeschooling families here who appreciate being part of the Good News Postal Bible Club. Free Bible studies and activity sheets which encourage children, young people, and adults to open and read the Bible for themselves are sent out each month, and each member is linked with a correspondence (or email) tutor to whom the mail (or email) their study answers and questions. Many families like the opportunities to write and receive letters to and from their tutor and to receive regular book awards. We also have overseas memebers.
