Education Articles

Homeschooling, public schooling and Sunday schooling (can I write that?): it’s all here.

Here are my original articles on homeschooling and the history of Christian education over at my old Blogger account (all content is moving to this new website). And, yes, I homeschool (see In defense of homeschooling).

Doug Phillips

I was one of the first news-sources to write on Phillips’ resignation, back in 2013 (thanks to my wife discovering it on facebook). Almost all my articles were published in the Google and Bing news-feed searches, coming up first under the search “Doug Phillips.” For historical sake (and the possible future-return of Doug himself): here is the list.
