Observations on Homeschool Dropouts from Jasmine Baucham, a homeschool graduate and daughter of Voddie Baucham:

Lessons we’ll learn or be reminded of from Homeschool Dropouts:

  • If we love the Lord, we will keep his commandments.
  • Homeschoolers often fall into the trap of being “good” kids rather than righteous kids. We measure ourselves according to the world’s standards instead of the Lord’s.
  • Our focus is sometimes on superiority instead of righteousness.
  • We must learn how to let the Lord define our success, not the world.
  • Pride is the silent killer of the homeschool movement.
  • We have a tendency to either run away from the world or fall into the world.
  • We need to be good stewards of the sacrifices our parents have made for us.
  • If we’re going to carry the torch our parents have passed on to us, we need to understand the gospel.

Review

“I would highly recommend this DVD for anyone who would be interested in an insider critique of the homeschooling movement; you can get it here. It’s also useful for those of us homeschool graduates who are confused and disheartened by the negative attitudes of our homeschooled peers as the Botkins do a good job of outlining the major issues at stake. For those of you who weren’t homeschooled are haven’t had much contact with homeschooling, the issues described in this DVD are widely applicable to our entire generation of Christian youth: a generation that has, for the most part, dumped the faith of their parents. Those of us who know the Lord need to take very seriously the responsibility we have to pass on the faith to the next generation – nobody else is going to do it for us.”  — V.
