Homeschooling...

Sucks. Plain and simple. Why do people hate public schools so much? There are plenty of good public schools in this country. Sure some are not that amazing, but they still teach the basics. Just because your child has an odd way of learning doesn't make it the teachers fault.

Edit: I just wanted to see how quickly everyones panties would get all knotted up! I don't care if you homeschool your kids.

I have seen bits and pieces of it. Still doesn't make me lose faith in public schools, or think homeschooling is ok.

You need to read Dumbing Us Down. It is written by a teacher in our public schools.

Is it an advocate for homeschooling? If it is, I'm sure there are also plenty of books that would say public school would be better.

Same thing with cows milk versus soy milk.

public school cannot meet every single childs specific needs....some children need more than a public school can offer plain and simple.  my sister is a public school teacher and she has a handful of students who would be better off at home in a one on one environment and she openly admits it.  doesnt make her a bad teacher...schools are set up to meet the majority of childrens needs but not all children fit into that majority.  also lots of people homeschool because they love it and feel that it offers their child a different learning experience....not because they "hate" public school.  not sure why you are so negative about homeschooling but its just as hypocritical to say that all homeschooling is bad as it is to say that all public education is bad.  just a thought.

Watch the WHOLE thing and research public schools statistics. I taught and was a pretty good teacher. But I can tell you for a fact that not everyone takes their job seriously. Schools fail for different reasons... etc. Tracking, if you watch the movie, is a real thing such does screw over some kids. I won't be homeschooling my child for different reasons. I opt on the idea of private schools instead. If you research homeschooling it really is a good options for families.

No one said it was the teacher's fault.  What's wrong with wanting to be responsible for your kids' educations?

I don't hate public schools. We have very good schools in my area. I volunteer in our local middle school. :) For my family, homeschooling is the better option.

What are you basing you "It sucks!" opinion on? I'm curious.
