How to take an active role in your children’s education

Why Homeschooling Isn't Just For Homeschoolers

Later this week, I will have both the honor and privilege to be the keynote speaker at the Midwest Homeschool Convention in Cincinnati.

I commend every family who makes the decision to homeschool their children. Not only is it a significant time investment, in which many families consciously choose to forgo a second income, but it’s also an investment of the heart. I’ve always believed that parents, not government should make education choices for their children. Whether your children are in public, private school or homeschooled it’s crucial that parents are directly involved!

When parents choose to homeschool their children, they are making a statement that says, “nothing is more important to us than making certain our children grow up with an understanding of our core values as a family.”

Given the liberal leanings of many public schools today, in which the schools are increasingly replacing traditional teachings, it is no surprise that the majority of folks who choose to homeschool their children are good conservatives with deeply held values.

Now, I personally was not homeschooled in the formal sense of the word. However, that doesn’t mean I didn’t learn plenty from my own parents. In addition to helping me with my homework conjugating verbs, deciphering word problems and sweating through long division at a young age, I give full credit to my parents for shaping my own political views and for teaching me about the important principles our founding fathers outlined when they created our great nation. That’s why I particularly like Mark Twain’s quote, “I never let my schooling interfere with my education.”

And that’s part of the reason I co-founded Learn Our History, to address a growing problem with the way our nation’s history is being presented to our children in schools.
Not only are our kids being put to sleep with mind-numbing lectures and text books that make their eyes glaze over, but too often the so-called facts are presented with a severe liberal bias and without any mention of God’s role in America. To add insult to injury, our children in many public schools often hear that America is to blame for many of our worst problems, rather than a solution to them.

I’m very proud of Learn Our History and am thrilled that so many homeschoolers are using it as a tool to teach their children about American History. After all, Learn Our History helps any child understand and appreciate the true stories of our country and how we’ve come so far since the colonists first came to our shores.

But, you certainly don’t have to be a homeschooler to appreciate Learn Our History. In fact, we created the series to help parents overcome the problems associated with their children’s learning of history in school. And while Learn Our History is a great educational tool first and foremost, the fun animation and story lines are plenty entertaining and a lot of fun for any child to watch.
