Ok, so I was listening to the radio the other morning while driving my boys to school and a woman called in to the radio station. She home schools her two children and gives her children straight A's even if they do not deserve them in order for them to get into very good colleges. She called in because she could not understand why her husband was so mad at her when he found out.
What is your take on this?
Here is my take, and everyone can speak their mind..
I for one agree with the husband. She is not helping her children, she is hindering them. If they are not learning the material, how are they going to do academically in college? It would in essence be like handing a scalpel to a Janitor and asking him to perform brain surgery.
I agree it is wrong, but how could you stop her? They still have to pass state tests and what not. She doesn't grade those... in fact, I don't think she is even allowed to administer them without a proctor with her. And if they get into college, they will quickly fail out unless she plans on doing their work for them there too. She is just setting them up for future failure, when they enter the world completely INCOMPETENT.

I agree with you... also how will they even get a sense of pride when receiving a good grade if they always get them. They will never have to push themselves. She will have a rude awakening when they take their SAT/ACT LOL
