. . . complain about the increasing trend of public schools requiring 1st grade and even K level kids to start school already knowing how to read, write, spell, do addition and subtraction, etc?
Homeschooling opponents love to claim that those without teaching certificates are unfit to teach. Who do they think, then, is teaching kids these skills before they ever set foot in a school?

If I thought me and my youngest daughter wouldn't ram heads all day I would totally home school. My kids are in Public School and you would not believe how much of their work was sent home that I had to teach. That the teacher hadn't had time to go over yet but they were still going to be tested on to meet testing requirements! Pissed me off! My kids knew all the basics when they went into school...because I taught them :)
