" Home schooling techniques vary as much as the motivations for doing it. In a country with no national curriculum, states are responsible for setting educational standards, which are generally only loosely applied to home schoolers. Parents generally put together their instructional plan themselves. Hundreds of publishers now produce materials geared toward home schoolers, their wares sold through the World Wide Web, in specialized magazines and conventions. They reflect a wide array of educational approaches and philosophies, from non-denominational correspondence courses to materials “built upon the firm foundation of scriptural truth” and not the “pseudo-scientific jargon of the secular educationists.”

That reason is a huge factor in my decision to homeschool our kids.
