Dr. Brian Ray is coming to the Family Vision Library to speak on January 28 at 7 p.m. Dr. Ray is the president of the National Home Education Research Institute NHERI. The speech will address the “Indoctrination Rip Current and the Homeschool Solution”. He is also a homeschooling father of eight children. The event is free and open to the public.
As a speaker and author, Dr. Ray received a Ph.D. in Science Education from Oregon State University. He has been critically reviewing research in the area of home education for more than 30 years, has appeared on the NBC Today Show and written research that has been printed in several publications, including Christianity Today and The Old Schoolhouse magazine. He is the founding editor of a quarterly peer-reviewed journal on home education, has published numerous articles on home education in professional journals. He has been interviewed on numerous radio, print, and television media, and is a former professor of education and a former classroom teacher in both private and public schools.
Dr. Brian Ray’s speaking in St. Louis is a special and rare event, and listeners often describe his talks as an absolute delightful breath of fresh air. He takes a friendly and logical approach to home education. He and his wife currently homeschool on a small farm in western Oregon. His latest books are available at nheri.org.
His message will focus on the question, “Why are things not changing? For the family? For Christian thinking in the U. S. and other countries?” He will also be encouraging those who are new to homeschooling as well as seasoned home educators. Dr. Ray will present the results of the latest research on home education and help you consider the answers to thought-provoking questions.
Some of the questions he intends to address include: “Why are so many Americans still thinking like socialists, pagans and statists?” “What is the purpose and effect of public or state schooling?” “How will the homeschooled succeed or fail in the real world of adulthood?” “What are the findings of the Gen2 Survey (Generation 2 Millennials)?”
The admission is free, but a freewill offering will be collected and books, reports and videos offered for sale. Doors open at 6:45 p.m., and the talk is expected to last until 9 p.m. The Family Vision Library is located at 2020 Parkway Drive in St. Peters.
