Non Religious Homeschooling

 I just read a great article about secular or non-religious homeschooling. The idea is that there is an underserved community of people who do no want their schooling to come mixed in with their religion.  There are now full communities of secular homeschoolers.

While not godless or even necessarily people not of faith, they (we) just prefer to have our children educated in two ways.  One is the secular standards based education that our country has defined.  the other is the religious, ethical, and spiritual beliefs of our family and chosen community.

Homeschool Literature Reviews announces a FREE ONLINE BOOK CLUB for homeschoolers! 

The website is the ONLY directory that features literature in which homeschoolers are featured.  Why read about Dick and Jane going to school when you can read about families like yours!?!

You can join the club as an individual, family, homeschool coop, class, or whatever.  The book club will feature: 

  • fiction books with homeschooled characters
  • club ideas for all ages and grade levels
  • mixture of printable, online, and hands-on activities
  • additional resource links for book extensions

    HomeschoolLiterature Book Club

I'm going to go register. I know some of the Moms who have organized and just to hear their humor and wisdom, it's easily worth the time. Tell your friends too.
