Israel Wayne discusses homeschooling on The Harvest Show

http://www.harvest-tv.com/video/VOD_GetShow.cfm?ShowID=198

Greetings!

8 August 2007 I appeared as a guest on The Harvest Show, which is a nationally syndicated television variety show with a potential viewership of over 46 million homes in North America alone.

I come on at the half hour point, so you’ll have to wade through the news and the sports guy to get to me. To watch the show, click HERE http://www.harvest-tv.com/video/VOD_GetShow.cfm?ShowID=198 and look for the August 8th broadcast.

To my knowledge this is the first time that LeSEA Broadcasting has ever done a special feature on home education, so this was a real answer to prayer.

The two hosts who interviewed me, Kelly and Debra are both very nice ladies.

Debra Maffett is a former Miss America (1983) and she talked with me a lot off the air about my book and our magazine. This is the first year her son, who she was homeschooling with the help of tutors, is going to be enrolled in a private Christian school.

Kelly Morgan used to be an actor (she is from NYC) and she appeared on television shows like Schoolhouse Rock which was a GenX era show that I remember. It was never very popular with homeschoolers, for some reason. 🙂 She also appeared on Sesame Street and other shows.

There were a number of engaging conversations I was blessed to have with hosts and staff off the air regarding home education and it was clear that this topic was new territory for them as a network.

I trust that the Lord will allow the broadcast to reach as many people as need to see it, and hopefully it will light a spark of interest.

God bless

God Uses Dr. Moore to Light the Flame

Dr. Raymond S. Moore passed away Friday, July 13, 2007, at the age of
91 after having suffered a massive stroke on Father’s Day. He is survived
by his wife Bernice Reid Moore; brother Charles and two sisters Loraine
Webster and Helena Reid; son Dennis Moore; and daughter Kathie Moore
Kordenbrock, her husband and three sons.

In the early 1980’s, Dr. Raymond Moore and his late wife, Dorothy,
discovered the truth that children learn better if they are educated
later than earlier. In 1972, Dr. Moore wrote an article for Harpers
Magazine on the dangers of early schooling. Reader’s Digest picked up
this article and distributed it to many more millions of people. Dr.
Moore struck a chord. More and more people began to doubt the American
education system.

Dr. Moore ended up writing a book called “Better Late than Early”,
which served as one of the foundational books for the modern homeschool
movement. He wrote several more books.

In 1982, he was interviewed twice by James Dobson, with Focus on the
Family. These shows on homeschooling created a spark in the Christian
community. Millions of people were exposed for the first time to the
thought of teaching their children themselves. And it made sense,
especially in light of the failing public school system. God’s Holy
Spirit worked in the individual hearts of families over the country at
that time and the modern homeschool movement was born.

Dr. Moore has said??Dr. Dobson’s attention made a great deal of
differenced. He said he got three times as many listener letters from
our appearances that he had over gotten from any program before. ?? Dr.
Moore did further ground-breaking research on parent-directed education,
which helped to fuel the homeschool movement. He was the first voice
heard in the major media advocating homeschooling.

I remember in the mid 1980’s when Dr. Raymond Moore called me and was
so thankful that Mike Farris established the Home School Legal Defense
Association. Up until that time he felt like he had the burden to help
these families legally, but he did not have the legal training.
Nonetheless, Dr. Raymond Moore faithfully traveled to many court
hearings to testify as an expert witness to the academic statistics and
success of homeschooling. He also testified in many state legislatures
when bills were introduced to legalize homeschooling.

I remember in the 1980’s when Dr. Raymond Moore and Dorothy would call
me and ask for the latest legal update, and I would tell them about the
cases and legal conflicts we had around the country for homeschooling.
They would write the report in their newsletter about our work and how
the legal battle was going. They encouraged everyone to join Home School
Legal Defense Association.

Although there was a parting of the ways for a while, Dr. Raymond Moore
began calling me to ask how I was doing in the last few years. He
explained too that he had no bitterness on some of the splits that
occurred earlier, and that he forgave everyone and admitted that he had
handled it wrongly. When I questioned him about his faith and his
relationship with Jesus Christ, he testified strongly to that
relationship, his belief in the Gospel, and his assurance of salvation
by grace.

I believe I’ll see him again someday and am thankful for his life of
work, especially his research and advocacy for homeschooling.

In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations to the Raymond S. &
Dorothy N. Moore Memorial Scholarship Fund at Weimar Institute,
Weimar,
CA 95736.

Sincerely,
Chris Klicka
