    Is homeschooling more popular with non-Christians than the general population?

    Ian Slatter, director of media relations for the Home School Legal Defense Association, said while home schooling has been around since the Founding Fathers, it started growing in the 1960s with the counterculture generation.

    The movement became dominated by evangelical Christians in the 1970s and really took off in the 1980s, Slatter said. Today, two-thirds of families who home school identify themselves as Christian, he said.

    BFD– 3/4 of the country as a whole self-identifies as Christian. I’m guessing he claimed evangelical Christians (another meaningless term.)
