Education Vigilantes Turn to Christian Home Schooling

Jan 19, 2008
It's no secret that the educational system in most places is in pretty bad shape. According to a recent (2006) Gallop Poll, nearly half of American parents are not satisfied with the quality of education students receive in our K-12 system. These parents cited a lack of vested interest from the teachers as well as a poor curriculum and inadequate experience on the teacher's part as reason for their dissatisfaction.

One criticism is that state educational standards are too low, allowing public schools to teach the bare minimum to their students while not provided adequate testing that would ensure they are learning at an acceptable rate.

Private schools, understandably, perform much better than public ones due in part to smaller class sizes, and higher teacher pay. However, many families can ill afford to pay the tuition and fees required for most public schools. This is what makes homeschooling an excellent option, and Christian home schools are becoming more popular each year as parents desire their children to be raised with stronger educational and moral standards.

Christian Homeschooling

Providing a positive, home school environment for your children allows them to get an education that lives up to your expectations, and not to those of the state. Additionally, Christian homeschooling allows your kids to spend more time with the family, which encourages a stronger family foundation. Spending too much time away from the family can be detrimental to a developing child's family life as it can not only provide less than ideal influences, but can also keep children from being in touch with the standards and belief sets that are laid out for them in the home place.

Also, most Christian homeschooling curriculums provide excellent educational standards, leaving children with an education that is equal to, or better than, that of most public and private schools. A recent study performed by Lawrence M. Rudner states that the average home school 8th grade student performs four grade levels above the national average and one in four home school students are enrolled in a grade level that is above their current age level.

The Internet is an excellent source for finding Christian homeschooling curriculums. There are numerous websites that provide customized curriculums based on the specific needs of your child. From "Learning to Read" programs for kindergarteners to complete and comprehensive high school curriculums providing easy methods for learning math, science, history and English, the internet offers a myriad of Christian homeschooling options.
