Keeping It Catholic's

Homeschool News Archives!

Updated August 20, 2006

 Keeping It Catholic's News Archives pages exist as a documented reference to the "History of the Homeschool Debate." Although the KIC website ceased reporting on the TORCH and NACHE situation by 2001, we still receive emails asking for updates on the unfortunate state of affairs in 1998-1999, which were reported on this website. Throughout the ensuing years, KIC also receives similar questions from those who subscribe to the KIC Email List.

 Since KIC must remain focused on its purpose (sharing with others the Church's doctrine on the Christian Education of Youth and how to apply it in our own "homeschools") - and since KIC had already provided enough documented information for Catholic homeschooling parents to assess the facts for themselves - it was decided to retain the News Archives for those seeking factual background information on the Catholic homeschooling disputes in 1998-1999, which remain unresolved to this day.

Why does a Catholic homeschool support group need or want "financial" sponsorship? Our Sunday Visitor, published of the controversial Catholic Vision of Love, sponsored the year 2000 TORCH leadership conference.

The tie-ins appear to be Regnum Christi/TORCH/NACHE members, Fr. Stubna, editor of Catholic Vision of Love, Our Sunday Visitor, Circle Media, and the Legionnaires of Christ.

These two pages are both a continuation and an expansion of Keeping It Catholic's original "Homeschool News" page. None of the links from the original page were deleted - just moved to one of the following:

Starting with the NCEA survey, our History of Homeschool Debate page offers you a chronological timeline, articles and links (both on and off site) to understand current issues in Catholic homeschooling.

Puzzle Pieces features information and observation pertinent only to Catholic homeschooling. Some info from the original "flash" page like "Priest Resigns from TORCH" and "Rome Didn't Deny It" has been moved to Puzzle Pieces.
