This looks like a good documentary: Homeschool Dropouts.
“The Botkin siblings have been talking to their peers around the United States, many of whom are planning futures that do not include home education.”
Are we preparing our children to carry the mantel to the next generation. For far to many professing believers that homeschool their main reasons are not firmly grounded in the commands found in the word of God. When this mindset is passed down to the next generation there is little stability and when a seemingly better alternative to homeschooling presents itself they will turn to that. It is when we ground our reasons for homeschooling in the all sufficient word of God and pass that on to our children that the next generation will be more intent on homeschooling themselves. It will be interesting to see what this DVD has to say.
At Kevin Swanson’s Blog he writes in his post Not Much Has Changed in 400 Years that the warning of Richard Baxter concerning who our children associate with is as true today as it was then.
Don’t forget the upcoming Sufficiency of Scripture 2009 Conference in December.
