A reader has asked us to publicize the 10th Carnival of Homeschooling. I was not previously aware of this Carnival, and I’m happy to bring it to everyone’s attention.
As our correspondent said, “Children are not being taught any real history in the public schools. To understand the crossroads our country is at, their best chance is to be homeschooled.”
Amen to that!
This week's carnival is at the Palm Tree Pundit. Drop by and have a look. Of particular interest to an old mathematician are Barbara Frank at The Imperfect Homeschooler, who discusses algebra, and Maria Miller at the Homeschool Math Blog.
You might also want to look in on The Common Room, the blog of the Headmistress and her home-schooled family. It’s a frequently-visited site of intelligent and well-educated news and commentary.
I home-schooled the future Baron until he was twelve, for mostly secular reasons. I’m very glad we decided to make the sacrifice to do it, and I advise everyone with children to consider it. If you want your child to be spared the cant that passes for learning in today’s schools, and become truly educated, home-schooling is the way to go.
