Aug 9, 2009
Author: Keith Jones

The Proper role of government is to protect equal rights, not provide equal things. Our Declaration of Independence says that God has endowed all mankind "with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." (read full article)

Phonics for Older Students

Jul 5, 2007
Author:Keith Jones

There are many older students who should be reading but can't. The reasons why are various but regardless of their past I believe that most can read with a little remedial help. One of the challenges we have in helping them is the problem of embarrassment. Many would rather hide the fact that they can't read than face up to it. This is understandable on the surface but has been and can be overcome. Homeschool is the perfect setting to alleviate all embarrassment. For one thing, no one needs to know that they are receiving remedial help but the tutor or the mom or dad. (read full article)

What Has Darwin to Do with Shakespeare?

A Meaningful World

Over the years, you’ve heard me recommend many publications on the subject of intelligent design. But I believe it is safe to say that I have never before discussed one that featured two chapters on Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

The reasoning behind these chapters is that Benjamin Wiker and Jonathan Witt’s new book, A Meaningful World, is about so much more than the narrow concept that many people have of “intelligent design.” Their book’s subtitle helps explain their idea: How the Arts and Sciences Reveal the Genius of Nature. It’s an original and utterly fascinating approach to the subject. (read full article)

Author: Sherri Jones

In the past, I have received a few questions about keeping grades and how to do it. But the question begs another question in my mind. "Are grades really that important?" Let me explain. (read full article)

Helping Colleges Understand Your Education

Feb 5, 2006
Author: Aaron Basko

The young woman followed me from the reception area up the stairs to my office. I could tell she was nervous. She was dressed in interview clothes, pressed and neutral-colored. She sat down in one of the rigid wooden chairs that bore the College’s seal as I thought of how I could help put her at ease. (read full article)

Homeschooling And Politics

Feb 4, 2006
Author: Joshua Jones

It seems that there are a lot of hot topics in politics today. Although it has been tempting to try ignore a lot of the controversy "out there", I have always tried to elevate the importance of standing up for what I believe. I am not one to stand on a soap box and rant about the world's problems. But I cannot ignore the morals and standards that I have grown to cherish and the freedom that those morals and standards bring. I cringe when I think about taking this freedom that I love for granted. (read full article)

Teaching Kids the Importance of History

Feb 3, 2006
Author: David Russell, PhD

I come from a long line of history conscious Russells and I have to say that growing up in Ken Russell's house was a daily journey down our family's memory lane as well as journeys into historical facts. My father remembers more historical facts than most people have forgotten. He can tell you the exact number of years from the death of, let's say, Abraham Lincoln to the birth of Richard Nixon. He knows facts, dates, and names that will boggle your mind. I credit him to a large degree for my own love of history, and also to my pursuit of graduate level studies in history.
