I agree. The true evil has been so evident here in Wisconsin these last 2 years (since Gov.Walker reined in the public school spending).
Oh I knew the public schools were bad 25 years ago,but we’ve seen the unbridled hatred from “teachers” and others in the system, and we continue to hear tales of their deeds everyday on talk radio out of Milwaukee (Mark Belling) and Madison (Vicki McKenna).
When I started college I took all my math classes via ‘math lab’, no teacher unless needed. All the books are simple, get it done, every step spelled out in examples. I kept them and have used them over and over for my daughter and now her daughter to help them with math. It is funny how quickly the light bulb goes off using the examples from the book.
Old saying: Them that can, do. Them that can't, teach.
“Damn....I am seriously considering pulling him out of school and home schooling.”
Wintertime is right. Look for a local homeschool cooperative or homeschool support group to give you teaching tips and find interesting, mind-building material (I’ve heard good things about Singapore math). Some homeschooling groups can get tutors on topics the parents are weak in. The internet is rich with helpful information on the topic if you know how to look for it.
Speaking softly, learning how their system works, etc etc... Your child does not have time to wait for this to work. GET THEM OUT.
Secondly, when we leave the “system” are we not in a sense surrendering?
Its ours we paid for it. When we leave we give to our enemies to do with what they want and “THEY WIN” How do we get back which is ours?. How do we win this battle of good vs evil? Roll over and walk away from the battle or stand up and fight for everything our fathers faught for. And they gave their lives for that. What are we giving for the fhight of freedom and liberty? Running from the system? Yes you are correct we must at all cost protect our children and educate them to the best of out abilities, but do we surrendor doing so?
