Homeschooling. Home-schooling. Home schooling. You will find all three representations of this word or phrase in the following articles. But, only because society has decided that it represents those who “don’t go off to school somewhere”.

The word (or phrase), itself, should never have been coined.

All we ever wanted to do was take back our God-given responsibility for the upbringing of the children God had given us. We wanted our kids around during the day. When all was said and done—when they had “left the nest”—we simply wanted to have had a relationship with them. If you looked for the kids, you’d find them at home; or, a place we had taken them.
We didn’t want to “school” them. But, there was that law. “Compulsory Attendance” it’s called. It’s been around 150 years. Children have to go to school. That’s what children do. They don’t roam, discover, work, discuss, do real things. They go to school.

So, if we were going to keep them home during the day—and obey the Law—we had to “school” them during the day. Of course, we roamed, discovered, worked, discussed and did real things. We just didn’t tell anyone. We said the kids were “in school”. Now these kids are growing up and are wowing college professors, starting businesses and becoming leaders—while still teenagers.

But we say we are home schooling (or, homeschooling; or, home-schooling). It makes the authorities happy. That gives us the freedom to roam, discover, work, discuss and do real things.
