I would eat fucking DIRT in a cardboard box before my son sets one foot in a public school system.

You are right. Children should be home schooled and all schools banned as dangerous to children's health (done only partly with tongue in cheek).

No. As long as you can read, you can homeschool.
It's the books that teach.

And if you can't read - find someone to teach you.

Re: You're an ASSHOLE if you're not considering homeschooling at this point.
I homeschool my kids. I don't understand the purpose of bringing children into this world only to turn around and let someone else take care of them day after day, all day, out of sight. I am the mother, it is my job to teach and raise my children to make sure they are safe and successful. The children are our future...people really want to leave that to a bunch of strangers?

Today, more than ever, I am thankful that I have the opportunity to stay home and raise my kids and homeschool them.

I also believe that there are so many misconceptions about homeschooled kids. It is far superior to public school. My kids are 4 and 5 and already on subtraction in math and my 5 year old is reading and my 4 year old is on his way to reading. They are beyond Kansas State Standards for Kindergarten but the public school here would not even allow my daughter to start Kindergarten until she is 6 years old because of her birthday. THey are also well socialized. School is not meant to be for making friends and who wants friends like that anyway? (the kinds of kids in school today!)

Re: You're an ASSHOLE if you're not considering homeschooling at this point.
I think parents think that it is an entirely hard job to homeschool. It actually can make everyones life easier and safer.

All you need is an itinerary type of plan, there are plans online for the specific age group. Tell the school you will be doing this and they will simply ask for your agenda/plan (copy theirs?) as to teaching, that is basically it. Then you teach them at your home, no snow days needed, they are free to attend any appts they may have, no school clothes needed to buy, they can spend time away from home learning which equals more trips, younger ones may learn quicker if there are older ones involved, etc.

To have them become victims of injections/bar coding/abuse from teachers and or other students, etc. simply seems to be the cruel way to be educated now a days. The schools may lose dollars due to a loss of a student or however, that money should be given to the parents to homeschool or should be deducted by the town as to any monetary valued income. They should not be able to take that money in if they are not providing (even by choice of the parents) and therefore.....those towns and citys may give a parent a hardtime as to the loss of the dollars involved each year to their system. If they cannot provide adequate systems that do not include bar coding/safety, etc. then they are not worth paying into.

Parents can provide the education, you do not need a college education to teach your children, do not let them make you inadequate.

My point is that you can't always be there to protect your kids so they need to know how to take care of themselves. Even when you are there, tragedies can happen like getting taken out by a drunk driver or a theater shooter. But, you will eventually have to let your kids out of your sight - to play at a friend's house, to stay overnight at a friend's house, to stay overnight at the grandparents' house. You will need to cut those apron strings at some point. There's nothing sadder than a parent who is still babying grown children. You know, the ones who call and talk to their kids college profs.

Sorry I can't agree with this. I wouldn't home school my kiddies. They need to be around kids their own age and be able to play and have fun and make friends.

I find home schooled children a little withdrawn, shy & too sheltered. That being said I live in a very small town of 1000 people and we have a great school with great teachers. If there was any ever form of bullying or neglect I would have my boy out of there quick smart.

I agree. Especially with children who have Aspergers.
Why put them through hell forcing them into a cruel environment like school, when it's well known that they don't stand a chance of coping with it all?

It should be a form of child abuse.

 Quoting: Super Bowl Dave


While I do send my kids to public school, I live in an all-white community, so I feel it's pretty safe. Even still, I don't let my kids walk or even ride the bus. I or my wife drop them off and pick them up every single day. And we don't let them play outside out of our sight either. They don't have the run of the neighborhood the way some kids we see do. I can't imagine letting them just ride off in the sunset to report back in a few hours. Even though that's how it was when I was a kid.

Re: You're an ASSHOLE if you're not considering homeschooling at this point.
Although I agree as to your reasoning, is anybody thinking of long term implications? If you think about it, we're going to have a generation who will be so socially fucked up that that alone might breed killing machines.


We are losing our social skills ever since electronic communications crept into our lives.
We're teaching children not even to touch another (germs). There's hardly anymore eye contact because they're too busy fussin' with their iPhones while walking, jogging, shopping, sunbathing, driving or waiting for a bus.


So what will happen if we restrict this generation from interacting with one another during their formative years by keeping them home? We're going to have a generation of human robots.

I don't profess to know the answer but I can see the future ramifications and the future is looking more and more frightening with each passing day though.

Still teach cursive. No calculators or cellphones allowed.

My son is fluent in 2 languages in second grade and doing above level in everything else.

Also doesn't cost me a dime.
