Home school vs government cookie-cutter education

Maybe the people that ridicule Christians advocating removing their children from government schools and home-schooling them should consider that the home-schooled have been among the top winners in spelling bees, geography bees, math competitions, and the mostly-home-schooled law students at Patrick Henry College have won first place in moot court competitions in the US and even in the UK using UK law!

The old mythical stereotype of the dumb backward Christian doesn’t work for scientists (since it’s all downhill after creationist Isaac Newton), or today, since the home-schooled consistently have scored higher on average than others on the same tests, and by the way, Christian and religious school students have shown better scores than those from public schools. And that’s with public schools’ scores aided by situations where the home-schoolers had to go into public schools, and boost the public school scores.
