Why Homeschool?


This is the workshop that launched the Christian home schooling movements in the United States, Canada, Mexico & Australia. Over 180,000 families attended The Basic Home Schooling Workshop from 1981 to 1995. It also helped to establish Christian Home School Associations in 35 states and provinces.

TOPICS:
1. Why Home School?
2. The Battle for Your Child
3. Child Training God's Way
4. How to Do a Great Job
5. Delight-Directed Studies
6. The Battle for Your Rights

You can listen to chapter 1 on Why Homeschool? free online. I saw Harris lecture and that finalized our decision to homeschool ...along with a letter from the school gently telling us that social life in middle school was going to be, how should we say, "different" from the grade school our 5th grader was attending. The dowload sample above is well worth listening to.
