Given the number of self-described Christians looking for “homeschool information” who query HEM about our “religious slant,” this post from The Thinking Mother blog highlights an issue for more families than one might initially think.
Today I received an email notice for an upcoming Christian homeschool conference. I’ll not be attending that conference, I did once and I was disappointed. I have attended other Christian homeschooling conferences with mixed opinions. I have the same problem with Christian homeschool magazines.
My issue is that the topics are so centered around general Christian living that often has nothing to do with homeschooling.
Why can’t a Christian homeschooling conference be mainly about homeschooling from a Christian perspective and maybe, if necessary, a small fraction be about Christian living in general?
If someone can explain this to me I’d love to hear it.
It will be interesting to see where this discussion goes.
