I am Kathy, I have six children and we’ve been homeschooling since 1998. My oldest daughter would have started kindergarten then, but since I was working in the schools, I didn’t want her to go. I didn’t like the way the kids were taught to be followers instead of leaders. I didn’t like how they downplayed the importance of families. I didn’t like how filled all the curriculum was with governmental propaganda and the social agendas being pushed upon the children.
So now- we homeschool.
Finding information about secular homeschooling resources is difficult, and nonreligious homeschoolers have a lot on their plates. Dealing with adversity and “fitting in” with local homeschoolers might be an issue. I just wanted to write so that maybe my experiences will help someone.
We just recently started going to a UU church. They’re not religious. In fact, I recommend you try it, if there’s one in your area. They’re mostly about enjoying life. In ours, we frequently discuss environmental issues. There’s definitely no group prayer going on.
Anyway- I hope you find something of value here. If you are an atheist homeschooler, be sure to add yourself to my blogroll by clicking on the “Atheist Blogs” at the top of this page.
I apologize in advance if I go off on a wild rant cursing about things, this may be the only place I can do that.
