I Agree. My parents could NOT and my education suffered tremendously because of it.

 I agree,  if you aren't smart enough to pass a simple test you aren't smart enough to teach a child.

I'm torn. I'm so against government intrusion but I've met some real idiots who were homeschooling. One was a lady who lived across the street from me years ago & could barely read. She never actually taught the kids anything, her husband was just so religious that he didn't want the kids in public school.

I'm sorry. That really stinks. 
My Aunt home schooled 5 of my cousins and her oldest actually graduated with honors and is ahead by one year and now in a public christian college, he's a pianist. Not sure how he graduated with honors, but I think some of their classes were integrated with the public school. 

Quoting CheesyKitty: I Agree. My parents could NOT and my education suffered tremendously because of it.

I agree. you have to got to school to be a teacher. so you should have to take a course to homeschool. just so they can learn the right things whether they go through it fast or not.

100000000% agree. I can NOT understand how a parent feels they are capable of teaching without at least a minimum of some type of prep course or something!
