Amish Education, Amish Culture
The Amish in their strategy of separation from the world firmly stand against formal education, which would expose them to independent thought, and eventually empower them to live outside their traditional community. Amish do not oppose education for the "English". They appreciate and pay for good professional services; however, higher education would not be an option for them, as it would erode the very fiber of their community.
To learn more about the culture, consider a stay at the Millersburg, Ohio Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast. My husband, Paul was once an Amish church member. You'll have to come and hear his story why he is no longer a member!
