Hello, my name is jessica.
I am married with a little girl, Bailey 17 mo. I work full time; husband works part time. I joined this group because we have been discussing our little one's future schooling. I am big on public school, he is big on home school. With home schooling I like the idea of being able to teach her at her pace and not have to worry about the problems that you run into with public schools such as teaching to the tests, smarter kids getting ignored because others need more help or visa verse (we dealt with both when i was in school) and that is just to mention a few... but i am worried that she will have problems with her problem solving and socialization when she gets older. That is not to mention how we would even manage to do home schooling with the way that we work. As well as costs and just plainly how to go about it. I'm hoping to learn about some of my worries and questions on here. I have plenty of time to work it out and figure out the best road for her only if i start now.
My question is do you home school or public school? Do you agree with the way our schools curriculum is set up?
UPDATE: I just wanted to mention that both my DH and I were in public school and didn't enjoy hardly any of it.
