Education is Life
Our entire value system stems from our experiences. The influences of a classroom or a book are minor compared to the plethora of impressions that bombard us constantly. Every teacher knows that by the time a child can sit at a school desk, that child has already received a majority of his education. The child has already developed the attitudes, drives, tendencies and emotions that will shape almost everything else he will do the rest of his life. That education did not come from a book; it came from experiential interaction. All the teacher can do at this point is offer some direction and a suggestion here and there. In fact, teachers take a back seat to the true teachers of life: parents. When a human being is most receptive to influences, then those influences have their greatest impact. A child is an open book which has engraved onto it's impressionable pages the most basic messages - transmitted by the parent.

Lessons from Homeschooling
Donald Boudreaux
Americans are increasingly aware that government education specialists in charge of K-12 government schools are lousy educators. This awareness is prompting parents to act rationally in a way that provides the best evidence yet that education bureaucrats cannot educate namely, more and more parents are homeschooling their children.
Organizing A Homeschool Group For Success
Carol L. Topp
"We're just a bunch of moms meeting together," a homeschool-group leader protested. "We don't want all the hassles of bank accounts, board meetings and bylaws." Frequently when I'm assisting homeschool groups, I encourage establishing a board of directors and creating bylaws for their group. Some leaders may wonder why a board and bylaws are needed at all. Here are some reasons.
