Home-Based Education DVD
Home-Based Education: The Informed Choice
Dr. Brian Ray gives an engaging and fact-filled presentation based on the latest research-based information. In this one-of-a-kind video, he explains why there are now 1.5 to 1.9 million American students being homeschooled and why it is growing internationally. Dr. Ray reviews research and analyzes important societal assumptions throughout the video. For example:
- Who homeschools?
- Why do they do it?
- How are the children performing academically?
- What about “socialization”?
- Do they know how to get along with others?
- How does home-based education improve parent/child and sibling/sibling relationships?
- What about the common good of society?
- How do homeschool graduates do in the “real world” of college and work?
- What about special needs children?
- What about talented and gifted students?
- What about minorities? Haven’t public schools saved them?
- Does home-based education restrict or advance freedom in liberty-loving
- Who should be teaching and indoctrinating children -- parents or the government?
- Should you homeschool?
These are the latest facts to help any parent make an informed decision about the education of his or her children.
