Who are the real "movers and shakers" of the educational establishment? Who initiates and funds our educational studies? Who has all the solutions to our educational woes? Who stands at the schoolhouse door with check in hand waiting to lure us onto the educational-reform bandwagon? The answers to these questions may surprise you.

Faith Christian Ministries is dedicated to meet the special needs of each individual child. The FCM staff tours to major cities in the United States to conduct one-on-one consultations with home schooling students and teachers. A child's abilities and learning techniques can be evaluated individually using key diagnostic tests. Many of these tests are taken orally or involve using manipulatives. Children are evaluated in 15 areas in reading including 5 areas to determine what they can do idependently, 5 areas with a teacher, and 5 areas of frustration. They are also evaluated in math, depending on age in up to 209 different areas.Further Information on Faith Christian Ministries
