Classical Home Schooling - Back to Faith and the Basics
Allan Wilson

Home schooling material can range from following the public school system standards to classical home schooling. What is a classical education and how does it fit into home schooling?

Classical education involves the art of speaking, communicating, and writing. It was the dominant form of education through the 19th century with academic learning in literature, history, art, math, and science. Latin and Greek languages were taught as a basis of all subjects. Students were trained through lectures, debates, and discussion. Critical thinking, logic, and independent reasoning were stressed.

Some of these features of classical education are still prevalent in todayís classroom; however they are being overshadowed by standardized testing. Teacherís are encouraged to ďteach to the testĒ in order to adhere to government mandated requirements. This type of learning is rigid and stifles the studentís learning experience.

This constraint on learning, along with the separation of Church and State in the public school system, has driven many families to provide classical home schooling for their children. Classical home schooling supporters believe that textbooks and teaching in the public school system have been over simplified. Latin, once a common language offered in public school, is now replaced by Spanish, German, and French.

Specifically, classical home schooling consists of a rigorous academic structure including: Grammar, Dialectic, and Rhetoric. Grammar refers to language, Dialectic refers to reasoning, and Rhetoric refers to logic. They are taught based on a studentís age.

Pressure has been placed on public schools to be politically correct. This has caused religion to be removed from the public school systems over the past century. However, many families believe that Faith-based education is beneficial. Classical home schooling comes from a Christian view point. Study of the bible and the influences of Christianity in education play an important role in classical education.
