Are you homeschooling in disgust of public schools?
I have not always been homeschooling. In fact, I only started two years ago. During the years my daughters had been going to their public school, there were times when certain things really bothered me and sometimes outright RAGED me!
The last straw was my 9yo old daughter Satine (7 at the time), telling me how she can't go to recess because her teacher was getting mad at her for not finishing her work and she had to do it during recess. Her damn teacher keeping her in during recess!!! Kids have a stress level that need to be let out by playing. After talking with my daughter, I concluded that the reason my daughter didn't finish her work, is because she wanted to take her time to make sure her answered were right. Satine doesn't like making mistakes, she's my little perfectionist. You all may think I'm over reacting, but what right does a teacher have in punishing my little girl for taking her time on her school work?
I got so sick and tired of these political and social agendas in the school. Every month I had a petition shoved in my face about this or that and how something is going against this amendment, or against morality , etc etc. Letters about government programs starting and ending, how the district is concerend with "scooores!"
I no longer felt my daughters were safe in school. My daughters teachers seemed like they hated their job and were taking it out on the children. These are just a few reason why I am so revolted with the public school system. I don't have time to go on about everything. Has anyone else experienced such negativity with public schools that you HAD to pull your kids out?
