Homeschool Quotes

"My primary purpose as a mother is to protect my son so that he becomes firmly rooted in faith and family before I let the harsh elements of our culture take a shot at him...The goal is not to isolate him, but to prepare him by laying a proper foundation. I want to be the primary influence in his life, not our culture. I want God to be the center of his life.” Former San Antonio News Anchor, Debora Daniels Albrecht

"Public schools are destroying the faith of a child...public schools are just the last place you would want to send your child." Chuck Smith, Pastor Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa

"What will be the legacy for your family and this nation as a result of the choices you make for the education of your children? It is one of the most important choices any parent will ever make." Michael Farris, Chairman & General Counsel of Home School Legal Defense Association, President of Patrick Henry College

"The only realistic way to fulfill the Biblical mandate to raise our children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord is to homeschool in the current culture." Mike Smith, President of Home School Legal Defense Association

"I think the best way to light our world is to be distinct from darkness, and homeschooling certainly helps to set us apart from the worldly culture in which we live. I have had more opportunities to share the gospel BECAUSE I was homeschooled than I ever would have had in a public school." Israel Wayne, homeschooled graduate and author of Homeschooling from a Biblical Worldview

"Public schools promote homosexuality as equally moral with heterosexuality...the Bible assigns the primary role of educator to parents. It also says that a child, when he grows up, will be like his teacher. Do we want our children to be like the ultra-liberal teachers that they have in public school? Or do we want them to be like their Christian parents?" T.C. Pinckney, 2002 vice president of the Southern Baptist Convention

Parents! Don't simply ask what kind of education you want for your children. Ask what kind of people do you want them to become! Bob & Geri Boyd

"I can see little consistency in a type of Christian activity which preaches the gospel on the street corners and at the ends of the earth, but neglects the children of the covenant by abandoning them to a cold and unbelieving secularism [by sending them to public schools]." J. Gresham Machen

"Based on the history thus far, it appears most Christians have such a dependence on
government schools that they remain in denial about how bad they really are." - Pat Marcum
