Homeschooled children do not grow up to be more religious

Source: The Conversation

Scholars studying homeschooling often talk about the academic achievement of homeschoolers or their social skills but they are not the main concern of many families who choose to homeschool. Homeschooling parents are more concerned about the environment of schools and want to offer a religious or moral alternative.

This is consistent with the finding that children of intensely polarized parents often embrace their parents’ views when they are young but go on to reject them as they enter young adulthood. At the same time, however, many adult children continue to identify with the religion in which they were raised, especially if they had a strong bond with a devout father.

Given these trends, many conservative religious families have turned to homeschool as a way to better ensure that their children will grow up to be like them. Homeschooled young adults were no more religious than demographically similar young people who attended public or private schools.
