Comfyshoes-I agree.I feel that secular public schools often try to indoctrinate children instead of developing kids that can make up their own mind.
Sometimes the level of intolerance of traditional conservative principles is extreme. Many times children learn limited information about their American history which is why the trend toward homeschooling in growing.
Many parents choose to homes school their children so that they could have a more active role in their child’s curriculum.
They can also tailor the education to meet the needs of their child. For example, if the child is gifted, the parents can develop a rigorous curriculum that compliments their child’s learning style.
They can also teach catechism and bible courses with the depth that they would like. This is something that will not be done in a secular school which is another reason that the parent’s made the choice.
