Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A compelling look at conservative Christian homeschooling families—and the worldview that could radically alter American political and intellectual life

 

Homeschooling is a large and growing phenomenon in U.S. society—between 1999 and 2007 it grew at twelve times the rate of public school enrollments, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. Yet information about this population is terribly incomplete. In this groundbreaking book, Robert Kunzman uses his unprecedented access to six conservative Christian homeschooling families to explore this elusive world, from its day-to-day life to its broader aspirations to transform American culture and politics.

Synopsis:

Homeschooling is a large and growing phenomenon in U.S. society—the National Center for Education Statistics recently reported that in the last decade it grew at twelve times the rate of public school enrollments. Yet information about this population is terribly incomplete. In this groundbreaking book, Robert Kunzman uses his unprecedented access to six conservative Christian homeschooling families to explore the subset of this elusive world that most influences public perception and rhetoric about the homeschooling movement, from its day-to-day life to its broader aspirations to transform American culture and politics.
