In this program Dr. Brian Ray takes you through an engaging and fact-filled presentation as he reviews research and analyzes important societal assumptions.
Questions he addresses include:
Why do they do it?
Can untrained, non-certificated parents successfully teach their children to read, write, and do arithmetic?
What about science?
What about "socialization"?
But how will they do in the "real world" of college and work?
Who should be training and indoctrinating the hearts and minds of your children?
Are homeschoolers just hiding from life around themselves or are they actually changing their communities and nations?
Does home-based education restrict or advance freedom in liberty-loving nations?
