Homeschoolers hit campaign trail

Homeschoolers hit campaign trail
GOP leader: 'By far, the best grass-roots workers in the nation'

As labor unions once again mobilize activists to campaign for Democratic candidates, a small but increasingly potent grass-roots force on the other side of the political spectrum is emerging from the burgeoning homeschool movement. 

The army of eager teen activists is called Generation Joshua, a program launched this year by the Virginia-based Home School Legal Defense Association. 

Generation Joshua director Ned Ryun ? son of the track star and Republican Kansas congressman, Jim Ryun ? believes homeschool students have the activist traits that make outstanding citizens and leaders because of their hands-on experience in the battle for homeschool freedom. 

As WorldNetDaily reported, an unprecedented new study of 7,300 adults who were homeschooled showed homeschool graduates work for candidates, contribute to campaigns and vote in much higher percentages than the general population of the United States. 

Estimates of the number of homeschoolers in the country range as high as 2.5 million.


Another thing to note is that homeschoolers, from what I have seen, tend to have more children, lots more children. This should be factored into the Roe Effect.
