(RNS) Rick Santorum's rise as a serious contender for the GOP presidential nomination is thrilling Christian home-schoolers -- a potent and organized political force, particularly in primaries. By Daniel Burke.


  1. Rick Santorum has a bachelors degree, a masters and a professional degree, but he wants his followers to be satisfied to be dropouts and homeschooled. Maybe he knows that he cannot mislead educated people

  2. I didn’t realize that nearly 2 million kids in the US were homeschooled. I believe that if you are a parent and are able to be at home teaching your kids, there are some great benefits to doing so. One is the individual attention that each kid gets versus a big classroom where the student to teacher ratio is too big to really impact the learning of the student.
