I don't agree with home schooling

I don't think children in most cases should be home schooled. IMHO most parents are not qualified to teach children beyond the preschool level. I think that it puts these kids at a disadvantage in multiple ways. They are socially and academically behind their peers.
Don't misunderstand me, I didn't say all. Some kids do great and have qualified parents. However , I think more districts should have stricter guidelines in regards to home schooling.

I think a lot of homeschooling parents shouldn't be homeschooling but I think a lot of teachers also suck.

The guidelines for K-12 schooling are actually so much harder than public school, here in Wisconsin. 

My neighbor homeschools her kids with the K-12 online schooling and her daughter is in 6th grade. She was telling me about an exam her daughter had to take and how she had to help her with it. Normally she wouldn't, but she said it was college level stuff. It was hard!

My sister is starting K-12 online schooling next year for 2nd grade, and she was playing some of their activities that they give for homework and my mom said some of the kindergarten stuff was hard for her. It's stuff she hasn't been taught in school yet.

Sounds like jealousy. Have you googled homeschooling students vs public schooling students? Homeschooling students always score much higher.

You know what's worse? Unschooling. That is the biggest crock of shit I have ever seen.
