Homeschooling


Welcome to the homeschooling section of the missionary resource center. In this section we'll take a look at some of the better resources available for Christian parents wishing to homeschool their children. Some of the most important considerations for parents considering homeschooling their children are "What are the pros and cons of homeschooling my children?" and "What curriculum should I use?" It's important to weigh all of the advantages and disadvantages of homeschooling your children before you get started. Please help yourself to the resources here, and be sure to post your questions in the discussion board so that other homeschooling parents can help you in your journey.
