    best book on homeschooling that I ever read

    The vast majority of homeschooling books are written by homeschooling parents. If my memory serves me correctly, Sam Blumenfeld is a bachelor! However, his name has been familiar to me for years, since, as one who has taught in both private and public schools and done private tutoring, he has been in the forefront of those calling for educational reform. His 1984 book NEA: Trojan Horse in American Education helped open a lot of people's eyes about the leftist agenda in the public schools. And he has developed his own program to teach reading, Alpha Phonics, which many have said is excellent. After we began homeschooling and I subscribed to Practical Homeschooling, imagine my pleasant surprise to see that Blumenfeld has a regular column in that magazine! He also writes regular columns for WorldNetDaily (see the last article in this newsletter). Homeschooling: A Parent's Guide to Teaching Children is a little old, but the arguments made are still valid and, in fact, everything that has happened since 1997 simply serves to confirm what is said. There are two kinds of homeschooling books: those which explain why homeschooling is best and those which tell how homeschooling can be done. This book is somewhat of a combination of both but the emphasis is on the why. I could give copious quotes from the book, but that would take up too much space. In the introduction, Blumenfeld writes, "What first started as a negative reaction against government monopoly education and all of its shortcomings, has now become a positive attempt by thousands of parents to create and enjoy a new family lifestyle built around the nurturing and teaching of children....While many people in our society seem to be searching for a way to escape our civilization, homeschoolers have an amazing sense of reality and responsibility when it comes to raising children and imparting to them an inherited body of knowledge, wisdom, and values." This is absolutely one of the best books to support and encourage homeschooling that I have ever read! After wonderful opening chapters on "Why Homeschool?" and parenting, Blumenfeld discusses "How to Teach and What to Teach" about writing, spelling, and arithmetic. There are excellent chapters on socialization, and even on "Dating Versus Courtship." Blumenfeld's material on ADD is worthy of consideration. And the later chapters on bureaucrats and legislators, why public schools cannot be trusted, and how bad public schools can get are scary to the max and should erase any possible arguments that those who believe in Judaeo-Christian principles might still make for sending innocent little children into these dens of humanistic indoctrination. Public school teachers who are Christians have my admiration and endorsement for trying to make a difference in the public schools, but there is absolutely nothing that they can say to me which would convince me that public schools are acceptable places for my children, especially after the evidence that Blumenfeld gives.
