A blog called Sacred Duty at Chron.com has a story on secular homeschooling: Secular Homeschooling Instills Love for Learning from a Non-Religious Perspective. They begin by describing a stereotypical religious homeschooler.
As with anything out of the mainstream, homeschooling has its fair share of misperceptions. One is that most families that choose to homeschool their children do so for religious reasons. Exacerbated by persistent rumors and pop culture stereotypes played out in films like 2006′s Jesus Camp, many are still under the impression that homeschooling in the United States is a religious phenomena where parents seek to minimize secular society’s impact on their children and instead, insulate them in a fundamental religious worldview. The reality is far different.
