The FALLACY Of Modern Education (And Why It Works)

As Catholic parents, we have a duty to evangelize our children, to raise them to know, love and serve God in this life. Outside of our relationship, there are billions of influences in the world that will seek to draw our children away from God, to their own service. There are a few influences in the world that will help us, but we will have the greatest influence on our children. The world seeks to separate our children from us, but how can they succeed? How can strangers possibly draw children away from Catholic parents who love them sincerely and … Continue

How Does Tutoring Help a Student?

If you’re a parent, you may wonder how providing a child with tutoring can help. You should be asking questions like: What benefits does tutoring really offer?

Why are Catholic homeschool students studying books by anti-Catholic authors?

When Catholics find themselves buying books by anti-Catholic authors, they should know that something’s wrong. Hopefully, you’ll give us a chance to explain what it is. If we look around at what’s being sold in the name of “Catholic homeschool curricula”, it’s quite revealing of the deeper problems in Catholic education. There is a disconnect between the Catholic educational tradition of St. Augustine, St. Thomas Aquinas, etc., and modern Catholic teachers. Catholic schools offer little more than public school programs with private school tuition, which isn’t a plan at all. Catholic homeschool programs offer one of two options: K-12 public … Continue
