The other night as I was an audience member for a homeschool theater production of the musical Annie, I was once again struck by how unique Christian homeschooling is as a cultural trend…
Guests who are not accustomed to homeschooling circles almost always remark on how well-behaved and orderly the children are, and how readily they take direction and show respect for those in authority. If you, like me, are used to such things, it doesn’t seem like such a big deal.
One woman, who had been a teacher in public schools and Sunday schools for over forty years, was dumbfounded that eighty plus children under the direction of about five to seven moms could be so cooperative.
