THE REVOLUTION IS HERE; IT IS NOW:

THE QUIET REVOLUTION: The Quiet Right.
Though few have noticed, this is already happening. A “Quiet Right” is patiently, and nearly invisibly, building a viable counterculture.
The main locus of this movement is in education, where conservative families have created robust alternatives to the secular and predominantly left-wing public education system. Many have turned to homeschooling, which has seen double-digit growth in recent years. Others have enrolled their children in a fast-growing network of “classical schools,” which have returned to the traditional liberal arts curriculum of logic, rhetoric, grammar, mathematics, Latin, and music. And the small but influential network of traditional, faith-based colleges, such as Hillsdale, Benedictine, Thomas Aquinas, and University of Dallas, have seen record-breaking enrollment.
FAMILIES OF THE WORLD UNITE! YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE BUT YOUR CHAINS. The revolution is here, and it is now: The Surprising Covid Legacy for America’s Home Schoolers
It was mid-morning, midweek and midwinter in the remote Badlands National Park of South Dakota — about as far as one could get from a schoolhouse. Yet throughout this surreal Midwestern moonscape of rainbow rock formations, I repeatedly ran into families with school-aged children. Why weren’t they in class? The reply was always the same: This is our classroom. We are homeschooled.
While many of the world’s children are back to the old routine — and many parents are horrified at the idea of ever having to teach them at home again — an estimated 3.7mn US households are homeschooling children. The proportion of homeschooled children in the US nearly doubled from 2.8 per cent before the pandemic to 5.4 per cent in 2020-21, according to the US Department of Education.
These do not represent the traditional cliché of homeschoolers: white families in conservative states, who sometimes avoid mainstream education for religious reasons. Some 41 per cent of homeschooled children were non-white even before the pandemic, according to a 2019 DoE report. Then, after the pandemic began, homeschooling increased more among African-Americans than among whites.

PODCAST: Homeschool Graduate’s Journey through Harvard
Homeschool graduate Ben Porteous was a student at Harvard University when Harvard Magazine published an article calling for a ban on homeschooling—a shocking idea from a school that has historically welcomed homeschool graduates. Join Jim Mason (HSLDA President) and Ben as they discuss Ben’s experience as a homeschool graduate attending the elite university. Ben shares how homeschooling fostered his love of learning languages and history, eventually earning him the honor of delivering the Latin Salutatory at Harvard’s 2022 commencement.
JOIN THE REVOLUTION. You will love it, and your kids will love it. Promise. My wife and I homeschooled our three kids for 18 years. By far the best decision we ever made. I know it might seem daunting at first, but there are so many resources out there that it’s actually easy to do. Most importantly, homeschooling is a way of life that you will come to love.
