  • There is good and bad in everything. I support homeschooling, I will be homeschooling my children but that doesn't mean that I think "everyone" should homeschool nor should some people who are now homeschooling be homeschooling.

    I do not think the government should be able to tell parents how to school their children though.

      I agree with that. It's a matter of parent choice, more than anything.

      I was reading something recently on a religious homeschooling mailing list, where a woman was upset that her sister-in-law had been saying ever since her children were born she was going to homeschool them, but was now taking steps to get them into preschool. She was upset, and looking for ways to "remind" her sister-in-law about homeschooling. Most folks on the list reminded her that it wasn't her decision to make.

      I do not think the government should be able to tell parents how to school their children though.

      Bingo! That's my number one issue. I shouldn't need anybody's permission or approval for the education I choose for my children, and we need to get more legal protections in place so people who think otherwise don't have the power to enforce it.

      Thanks for feeling this way.
