The Truth About School and What It Means to Our Society - Homeschool Your Children! Share This!
We're homeschooling our kids, we're going to be implementing Ron Paul's new program (ronpaulcurriculum.com) - does anyone here homeschool? How do you feel about it?

We decided public school is not only dangerous, but counter-productive to real education. They don't teach you ANYTHING in school other than reading/writing and math, everything you need to be a good slave! Haha the video explains it well...

Only thing about homeschooling is that some states don't give homeschoolers a diploma once they are done with high school.

In order to get a Pell Grant for college, you have to have a high school diploma or a GED certificate.

This started July 1st of last year. They no longer accept ACT scores from homeschoolers for Pell Grant applications.

The risk far outweighs any benefit as the risk will vary from child to child.

We use a cheap, low-interaction "umbrella" program which issues a high school diploma and even has an optional ceremony to attend. It's a layer between the state and the homeschool family that oversees the homeschool within the laws of the state. Costs me $60 a year for the whole family regardless of number of kids.

Always easy to get around this diploma thing. Actually, you can print a diploma right off the internet and name the school anything you want, if someone wanted to go that route.

Hi there , I m in the UK and been Home Schooling for 2 months now , my son is 10....

I had read about it and been debating whether it was the right thing to do for a couple of months , then I attended an IEP meeting with the Head and my son's Classroom assistant , (IEP is Individual Education Plan) , my son wears hearing aids but still has a bit of trouble within a classroom environment hearing as hearing aids do distort sound (I wear them too so I know this )

My son was getting 10 minutes a week extra help , was falling behind terrible and had absolutely zero confidence, the school was adamant that he "didn't listen" er?

When I first started teaching him he couldn't do simple maths like times tables , number bonds to 100 etc....now he whizzing through adding , subtraction and long multiplication......starting divison and fractions soon.

I would recommend Home Schooling to everyone , but here in UK most people look at you like you are crazy.....

yeah its good to do

you will find out fast how lacking the current system is.

by how you're child handles the simple basics of learning.

by that you will see how much trouble, we are truly in, in the future.

as far as pell grants go

when you get a proper education you will not need grants or loans

If "most" people say you are crazy for doing something... KEEP DOING IT. It means that you are thinking beyond the current system and it's limitations. It's called being an evolved being and that is something "they" do not like or understand.

Good Luck!

I want to homeschool. My husband is dead set against it. I have a few years,so I'm in the process of doing research to back up my feelings on the matter. He's stuck on the socializing the kids thing. All our neighbors have kids our kids age, so I don't know why the child has to go to school to be socialized?

If anyone has any talking points on why homeschooling is more beneficial, I'd appreciate reading them. I'm trying to keep the discussion logical, not emotional.

My wife is an elementary school teacher. She is also a doctor.

Our three children have attended everything from public to private to Montessori. All of them were unacceptable.

She quit her job and pulled our kids. Homeschooling has been the most important decision we have ever made. It has been a complete transformation for the kids. It saved our kids.

And because their days aren't filled with indoctrination bullshit, all three have skipped grades and excelled way beyond their peers. It has been awsome.

 Quoting: PopeJean


Socializing isn't a problem unless you are a lazy parent (tell your husband that) and don't want to spend the time to involve your children in activities like sports, clubs, boy/girlscouts, etc.

School is actually a HORRIBLE environment for socializing, have you been there in the last 10-15 years? It isn't like the "old days" that my parents and grandparents talk about. Public School system for the most part breeds commonism and animalism toward eachother. Look at the clicks, if you don't fall into one, you either become the nerd with that "1 friend" who won't even stand behind you when shit hits the fan, wind up socially fucked up, and hating your parents cause they used the public school system as a babysitter, OR you wind up pulling a columbine when you decide you can't take it anymore. Kids are fuckin horrible to eachother at school, it's cause there is too many of them.

Restore education to what it was supposed to be. The books have been scrubbed to dumb down our children. They don't want you to think individually, it is bad for the system.

Read www.ronpaulcurriculum.com front page and see that there are MANY homeschool families where the kids goto college by age 13, because it is THAT much more advanced.

Goodluck, I wish everyone the best who wants to homeschool, don't let your children be programmed by common core and the evil department of education! Our, and America's futures lie with them!!! They are the most important thing in the world right now! Teach them constitution, liberty, the values and principles of freedom, make them memorize the bill of rights and constitution etc etc

Nice to hear!!!


Homeschooling is a fine way to go.

I had doubts about it years ago, but from the first, it fascinated me.
most of my friends have homeschooled.
It was far, far better than public school.

my own went to private school with a religious background.


I would have homeschooled if I could not afford the private school. That sounds backward, but there are people who work and manage to homeschool, as well.
You don't have to be an American to treasure freedom, but it sure does help !
