my dd is in the 2nd grade and then I have in preschool she will be in kindergarden next year. I am talking to k12 about homeschooling I have to ssend her birth certificate and stuff yet, but the reason I am looking into homeschooling s because it has to be easier than what we are oing now. It doesn't make sense because my dd got straight A's and B's all year last year teachers never said anything. The teacher this year said she wouldn't have passed her last year had she had her. She said she is below average in her reading so we get a letter from in the mail that she is behind and that she needs to read 90 minutes a day. Well they also want her to do tutoring after school so she is doing this monday-thursday she doesn't get home until 530 then we eat dinner so she doesn't get started on homework until 6 or after (plus I have a 4.5 year old and a 15 month old). Well, they gave me flash cards they want me to flash her each night which is 338 words so this is all the homework she has to do each night which she gets home at 530 so don't start until 6. she gets flashed 338 flash cards, then she has anywhere from 1-3 pages of homework on top of that her 16 spelling words she has to study. Then she a book she is supost to bring home each night to read and tested on well she has been bringing home 10 books (((10))) to read because they want her to read 90 minutes. so she doesn't have a life. She is going to school until 530 eats dinner then starts on homework and doing homework until bedtime. This is the first week of tutoring so I don't even know how I am going to do it tonight she gets home at 530 goes to girlscouts at 6-730. I don't want to tak her out of girlscouts because they are slamming her with all of this homework daily. So I am thinking of homeschooling. Then on top of all that I have to get all the girls bathed and ready for bed (bedtime is 830 for the older to and 7 or 730 for the baby).
Cons: (1) They never leave! (2) You don't get snow days-EVER! (3) You have to be smarter than they are ALL the time! I'm sorry, I can't think of any "Pros" lol :p
