A great line about public schools

Heather at Special Needs Homeschooling has a link to this short video:

The Youtube introduction says: "Dr. Voddie Baucham, author of the new book "Family Driven Faith," talks about home education."

I hadn't heard of him before, but I love the last line of the video (starting at about second 35) where he says:

"If we continue to send our children to Ceasar for their education they'll continue to come home as Romans"

I would like to check out his book.

That is a good line. I've heard of the guy, and AFAIK he's one of the patriarchalist-type Dominionist preachers. I don't think he's as extreme as, say, Vision Forum, but he's one of those guys.

Yeah, he is a major part in the family intergrated church, patriarchal etc movement. I like him for the most part, but I believe in that stuff so... If you can look past that he has some good points on homeschooling, even does a newsletter regularly about the school system that you might like, but be warned it is written from a fairly extremist viewpoint (it's called the continuing collapse, and the subtitle is Exposing Government Schools: The Youth Ministry of the State Church of Secular Humanism)

His most recent edition is at the following link, and you can also get to his blog on the same website, though he talks about a lot more than just homeschooling so that may not interest you.

Bruce Short actually publishes The Continuing Collapse and Voddie Baucham only passes it along on his blog.

He is a Reformed/Calvinist preacher, not a Dominionist. His book, Family Driven Faith can be read and applied by anyone in any denomination. I highly recommend it.
