Socially Active Homeschoolers Change College Admission Policy

Socially Active Homeschoolers Change College Admission Policy
Here is the problem.  Colleges all have very unique, very different policies from one another.  In addition, college admission policies can change over time, sometimes quite suddenly, it seems.  That's why half the time the answer to a question is "check with the college where you plan to apply." Here is the solution.  Create change.  Be a change agent.  Be proactive. Make the change happen by being assertive and asking for change.  Simply asking them to...

Allow Your Grown Students to Engage the Culture and Change the World

Allow Your Grown Students to Engage the Culture and Change the World
Some people wonder if Christians should go to college.  After all, college is filled with faulty humans.  For many people and for many reasons, college is the next step after high school."When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways."1 Corinthians 13: 11We spend much of our homeschool years explaining to people the reasons we...

Discovering Passion in Teens

Discovering Passion in Teens
Discovering the passion in your teenagers is like trying to nail jello to a wall!  Kids change their minds like crazy about the things that interest them.  That's one of the reasons why I encourage math for students.  One day they want to be a musician or park ranger - but the next they want to be an engineer!  I think it's a good idea to encourage passion in teens even while recognizing that it might...

The Times They are A-Changin'

The Times They are A-Changin'
Why can't things just stay the same?   I hate change, so this is a real problem for me.   Colleges have changed dramatically over time. Their academic, social, and moral standards.  When I was in high school, for example, the University of Washington was our "backyard college" that everyone got into.  Now it's nationally renown college and is growing increasingly selective.  It is considered to be a "Public Ivy" by some.  My husband attended Pacific Lutheran...
