pretty effing ridiculous? I am all for an education, but these kids are there Monday-Friday from around 7-4ish. That is a full time job! Kids only have ONE time in their lives to be children! And we are filling it with BS.

Anyway, just my opinion. I honestly don't understand why the day/week/school year needs to be so long. What are they doing that whole time? Studies show they aren't learning much anyway ;)

There is your answer, the standardized tests, pacing guides and NCLB.

How do you like homeschooling? How does your kids like it? What kind of activities do you do so they can interact socially? I am think about what I want to do for my child's future. I'm debating homeschool. Trying to get some tips. Thank you :)
