Right now my kids are in public school, but I am considering homeschooling. Recently, a 4th grade boy in my Cub Scout Pack came in wearing a name tag type thing around his neck. I asked him about it and he said it was for "Boot Camp" and when questioned further he said, "Oh, it's just some after school thing." A few days later I was talking to a friend with a 4th grade son and she mentioned boot camp. Guess what it is? It's a special free tutoring session offered to the fourth graders specifically to help them pass the state achievement tests. I wonder how much actual teaching time is lost while they're "teaching to the test".
