In 2014, HARO, the parent organization of Homeschoolers Anonymous, conducted a survey of adult alumni of the modern Christian homeschool movement in consultation with the Coalition for Responsible Home Education (CRHE). The purpose of this survey was to investigate the life experiences of Christian homeschool alumni by collecting information that past surveys of homeschool alumni had not.
Installment Five of the 2014 HARO Survey examines respondents’ religious denomination, as well as how religion played a role in the teaching of science, politics, and economics. More than half of our respondents characterized their upbringing as fundamentalist; this variable had highly salient correlations with a variety of other factors, including academics, abuse, and attitudes towards homeschooling. Finally, we examine respondents’ current religious beliefs and their relationship to the religious character of their homeschool environment.
