1. Washington Times Op-ed: Courts Back Families on Searches

Recently, a homeschooling family had this experience with government
officials. A 15-year-old homeschooled boy went to a police station and
complained about his adoptive parents. The police and social services
interviewed the boy about the restrictions his parents placed on him,
including not being able to have a cell phone or a truck, and denying
his request to attend public school. But it didn't end there.

5. Homeschooling Thru High School: ROTC Benefits

If your child is interested in a military career after high school,
consider the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC). ROTC benefits
include tuition scholarships at colleges around the country. Speaking
with a military recruiter now will provide valuable information and
perhaps give your child some direction as to which high school courses
would benefit him the most. Helpful ROTC FAQs are available from the
College Board as well as from the specific branches of the military.

6. 'Home School Heartbeat': Homeschooling as Discipleship

In homeschooling, you don't have to make time to disciple your child's
heart--you have the unsurpassed opportunity to interact with him
daily. This week, Mike Smith talks with a homeschool graduate about
her parents' positive influence, and a homeschooling parent team who
share what discipleship means in their family.
