Austin Bombings Cast Unwelcome Spotlight on Home Schooling
Pamela Crouch home-schooled her children for more than a decade for many reasons, including to keep them safe and shield them from school bullies. But more than anything, she wanted to raise virtuous children who were kind, truthful and polite.
“Not only did I not want my children bullied, I didn’t want them to bully anyone else,” she said.
Her community of home-schoolers in Pflugerville was rocked recently, however, when police identified the Austin serial bomber as Mark Conditt, a 23-year-old who was home-schooled in the northeast suburb.
