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."

[b]Andrew[/b]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.
