The Homeschool Apostates

posted on December 6, 2013

At The American Prospect, Kathryn Joyce covers the rebellion of a group of young homeschooled Christian fundamentalists against the tenants of their upbringings. She writes, “As their movement spreads, the ex-homeschoolers are developing a reform agenda. Members are teaming on state-by-state research assessments of homeschooling policy, drafting policy papers, and grading the states on how well they protect homeschooled children … The ultimate goal is to build a lobbying counterforce to the [Home School Legal Defense Association] HSLDA, challenging its message of parental rights and religious freedom with a voice that has long been absent from discussions of homeschooling: that of children.”
