No matter a parents’ original motivation, most who opt for homeschooling rather than placing children in public or private schools believe themselves to have their best interests in mind. Christians concerned with the religious education available at different parochial schools may entertain the idea as a valid option if they feel more comfortable preaching their own interpretation of the religion. The following blogs, by no means a complete guide on those available, provide a glimpse into the very eclectic and diverse world of Christian homeschooling.
