The Homeschoolers Song!!

As a homeschooler, I don't even know how to feel about this, but I thought it was worth checking out:

The song needs a bit more expansion. Homeschoolers win lots of other things as well, not just spelling bees :) Debate tournaments, geography competitions, science fairs, etc. Homeschooling allows for a lot more leeway for specialization.

I do like the bit about taking over the country, however. The average birth rate for the US is something like 2.1 children per woman, barely enough to sustain population levels, but almost all the homeschoolers I know have more children than that. I have 8 brothers and sisters myself. And homeschoolers are one of the strongest political forces out there, person for person - homeschoolers helped elect Congressman Todd Akin in our state, for instance. So I have hope that homeschoolers will be able to motivate some form of school reform in the near future, either through school vouchers or tax credits.

I don't know why but it made me laugh. It doesn't really make any sense and it's just plain silly in my opinion.

defintely goofey, nice harmony.....kinda....
made me smile, i don't really care what others think of me, that's why we homeschool, we do what is right for us, regardless of what others think. Isn't that what society is trying to teach? Though they stink at it. :lol:
