Don't buy into anyone's system. Create your own. This is the way life should be lived in an ideal world.
Home schooling is becoming more popular as many parents become disillusioned with public schooling and want to develop closer relationships with their children during the formative years.
The mainstay of the movement seems to be Christian parents who don't like the secular/ humanistic curriculum and the so-called worldly influences of other children in public schools, hence, they choose to educate them on their own with Christian values.
The other thrust seems to be that the public school system simply fails in its obligation to churn out well-educated children ready for the competitive real world.
The home schooling movement, arguably started by John Holt in the 1970s, is based upon the idea that children learn better by themselves following their own natural interests.
