Homeschooling Today - Part 2

Dr. James Dobson
Heidi and Jay St. John
Too many parents are under the impression that education is simply reading, writing, and arithmetic. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Heidi and Jay St. John, who have homeschooled their seven kids, declare that education is never neutral! The founders of Firmly Planted Homeschool Resource Center insist that there is always a worldview being taught. In Luke 6:40, Jesus said, "Everyone who is fully trained will be like their teacher." That is why Heidi wants to equip her kids with a biblical worldview, so they know why they believe what they believe.
