Huckabee Not the Best for Homeschoolers, 2008, Homeschool World
This is something new for me. For the last 22 years, my family has served the homeschooling movement without ever uttering a single word (in print OR behind the scenes) regarding national or state politics.
But now that one particular candidate-former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee-is experiencing a surge in popularity that the mainstream press attributes to the homeschool movement, I feel the need to say a few words.
For those who haven’t yet seen it, an “ahaH” means “another homeschooler against Huckabee.” For me, the issue isn’t so much being “against” Mr. Huckabee as it is speaking in my own voice, and not supporting one candidate based on a single issue that I favor, at the behest of one person. Homeschooling is not homogenous.
