Why do people who can't spell, use correct grammar, correct punctuation, or even the correct word think they can homeschool? Sure, you get a book with the answers, but how can you teach what you obviously don't know? How do you go about correcting mistakes on something like a book report? Something that has no answer key.
If you don't know the difference between "your" and "you're" or "then" and "than" or "to" "too" and "two", you have no business teaching anybody.
Yes, it IS important to know those things to get a good job. If you're content with your (notice the difference in "you're" and "your") children having a menial job when they grow up, keep teaching them yourself.

I have no idea what your ranting about. I home school 3 of my kids and they are all advanced by at least 1 year compared to public school kids. The curriculum we use is similar and sometimes the same as what public school uses, but they have the advantage of time. They never have to settle for a lower grade on an assignment because they have time to study until they know it, unlike the public school system that has a strict schedule to follow and leaves kids behind. My kids also have the advantage of being able to pursue their interests unlike public school kids.
