The Christian Home-Schooling World that Shaped Dan Cox

posted on November 3, 2022

Peter Jamison of The Washington Post reports that Dan Cox, the Republican nominee for Governor of Maryland, has deep ties to the conservative Christian home-schooling movement. Cox’s father started Walkersville Christian Family Schools, which provides an alternative to secular public education. Cox and his children attended Walkersville Christian, and Cox has argued for expanding protections for home-schooling in the Maryland legislature. Jamison writes, “There is a central theme to which Cox reliably returns, and it was the same one that animated many of the supporters he spoke to at the fairgrounds: parents’ control over the upbringing and education of their children.”
