I wasn't able to read the post, but I assume it says that homeschooling is wrong. I'm not surprised. I love the John Stossel special!

I just laugh at them now. Anyone who is so set against it won't be able to be convinced otherwise.

Isn't that the (sad) truth?

While I gave some heated responses in that post in full support of unregulated homeschooling, I might play devil's advocate and say that I know several families who feed that stereotype and I do understand where several of the anti-homeschoolers are coming from. Having had the opportunity to speak to one of our neighbors (the principal at a public charter school that receives many children previously homeschooled) and hearing his frustration at receiving children into the sixth grade who can't read past a Kindergarten level or do math other than basic addition (and we aren't talking about a minority of the homeschooled students he's seen, rather the majority), having no world view outside of their family's religious views or science exposure outside of nature walks and bird watching, and then having upset parents when they hear their child needs to be "remediated" - they have some valid concerns.

*runs to hide*

I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Academic pushing Mother. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosey, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it raising my child. I believe that my place, as a woman, is in the home caring for my husband and children. My husband is head of our home.             Aimee
