We Will Not Conform: Portrait of a Home School Family
We will not conform. We will not conform. We will not conform. No, it isn’t a chant or a mantra. It’s a statement of fact. Something that we as grassroots activists should be used to by now. How about another group of folks who could be considered full-time protesters? Another group of people who might be used to not conforming for even longer than the tea party groups have been around. How about a group of dedicated home schoolers? This is the portrait of a home school mom and dad.
The home school moms and dads are those parents who decided to throw off the yolk of traditional education and have already chosen not to conform. They decided to keep their children at home, for whatever reason; but no matter if you publicly educate your children or privately educate them, we all ultimately want a well-educated child.
A home school family consists of parents who decided to go against the grain and took their child’s education in their own hands, quite literally. I should know, I’m one of them.
