The Truth About Homeschoolers...

Postby doodlebird » Tue Jun 29, 2010 6:23 pm

I get tired of the same old arguments being made against homeschooling. In response to some of them, I recently published this online article.

Thought I'd share it :

Thank you for taking the time to read it. I've been homeschooling for over 10 years and I've seen little change in the arguments against homeschoolers, even though there have been several studies now. I had hoped to address this topic from a slightly different angle than others have already used.

Diane :P

Wow, I just have to come in here and say how impressed I am with your argument. I agree with your views, being a 14 year old home schooled teen myself, and I am incredibly happy to see someone finally get the guts to stand up to the critics and tell them the truth. I myself have never been to public school, but have conducted extensive research on it's system, and to be honest, I am absolutely horrified. The entire objective of public school is to break up the family and separate the individuals that make it, leaving the family a teetering unstable mess that can easily be knocked down and then destroyed. The children/teens in public school go in with great potential and come out brainwashed and braindead, their numbed minds filled with images of sex, violence, drugs, beer and the belief that all things happen by chance, and that no matter what they do, it was going to happen anyway sometime or later, so just sin and enjoy it while you can. No wonder the crime rate has risen so dramatically in the past few decades, just look at what America is teaching it's next generations! Already our government is attempting to outlaw homeschooling, and the reason is all too clear: families that home-school their children are 99% more likely to remain a stable, functional unit, and the reason is because their children are not your average brainwashed robots. Now, I am not saying that all public schooled people are idiots, but about 98% percent of them are, and that is exactly what today's government systems want. People educated and steeped in lies and fairy tales are so much easier to control and manipulate than people who have their feet firmly planted in the solid foundation of truth and true reasoning; and who can fight back with a mind that works to it's fullest capabilities.

God bless you for standing up and speaking the truth, we need more people like you today in our depraved society!

Wow! I see you've done your homework. Thanks for reading and responding :)

There's so much more to our education system that people just don't hear about.

Why thank you. :D People are usually quite surprised that I do that kind of research, and I just say 'It's because I'm home-schooled'. I agree, our society today is kept in the dark about what really goes on in the public school system, and those who do know about it have been brainwashed into thinking it is the right thing.

Response from a classroom teacher

Postby terryv » Thu Jul 22, 2010 10:00 am

Doodlebird, I loved your article --- well-written and thought out. I think that because you come from both worlds and have seen both sides of the argument, that lends huge credibility to what you say. I am a classroom Math and English teacher from the public school system in Washington state. I am greatly interested in this issue because I am now involved in teaching online as a middle school and high school tutor, and many of my clients will be from home school families. I feel that the government-run public schools can only do as well as how they can manage large class loads (25 to 30 students per class? are you kidding?) and deal with curriculum dicates from the state level that amount to unfunded mandates and unsupported initiatives. In short, unfortunately, the poor classroom teachers are stuck in an old, inefficient, unsupported model of education. The natural way of teaching, at the family level, seems much better, and I look forward to learning more about the help and resources such families have available to them. Terry
