 Home-schooling drawing more evangelical Christians

NEW HARTFORD, Conn. -- Charlie Marsh's home-schooling has included reading, writing and creationism.

The New Hartford boy, who will graduate high school May 21 in a small ceremony at his family's church, is one of a growing number of evangelical Christian students to be home-schooled.

Educated at home by his born-again Christian parents since he was 8, he was taught science from a creationist point of view and history from a Christian perspective.

The Home School Legal Defense Association, an advocacy group, estimates that American home-schooling is a $750 million dollar industry that could hit $1 billion in the next few years. The Virginia-based group says evangelical Christians account for 70 percent of that market.

"The curriculum market even 10 years ago was not that large," said Ian Slatter, a spokesman for the group. "What we have seen is an explosion with the Internet."

Yes it is pretty good news! definetly something that we can pray for. So that there is will be raised up a generation of youth that are into the Word of God and following God's ways. But there has to be a warning also that if you homeschool it won't necessary help.. it definetly is a task that has to be taken very seriously and it's alot of hard work.
