If more people would homeschool or find a school to better fit their child there would be far less depression and use of Ritalin et al among schoolkids.

Private Tutors have always been the choice of those who could over Private Schools.
When you home school, you are being a nasty old elitist.
First mistake... ;-) It's amazing what happens when you start thinking and stop denying the truth.
The Democrats are fully aware that the only way a people can hold onto "freedom" is if they have an education.
That is why they want "public" schooling, to dumb down the population so they can remain "in charge".
Notice one thing about Kerry. You can sense it. The ONLY reason he wants to be elected is that he wants to be President and have the power.
Bush, talks about goals for children, and ownership society, etc.
Please God, liberate the school systems from the Governement, allow them to go back to their communities, and have the parents with kids in school foot the bill.
It isn't "fair" if your idea is the communistic "everthing the same for everyone", but is is very fair if you believe in "let those who will...win"
>>Then why cant he succeed in junior high? I asked her.
The room was quiet.
That was when I decided I could do better. <<
Such is the "Ta-Da" moment! It happened for me when my six year old was getting detentions for not finishing her work in class (eventhough she was allowed to play in freetime). I asked the teacher, "What can we do to keep her on task?"
This woman looked me in the eye and said, "I don't know."
Quick as a wink (and with the words of some great FReepers!) Dad let me begin homeschooling!
My angel will be seven on Monday (mommy types with a tear in her eye) and is four months away from finishing her Third grade curriculm.
What a waste of time that school was!!
The way it is set up if you want to send you kid to private school you have to pay twice, once for the public school system, and oncve for your own school. This is just plain criminal.
hmm...nice to hear from a liberal home schooler.
"When you home school, you are being a nasty old elitist."
Why, thank you. I try.
happy homeschooling mama BTTT
Homeschooling makes the "abnormal" into "normal". ;>)
Think of the mental health initiative making its way thru Congress now. All children will have mental health screenings. Be very afraid. If your kid is not in school, you escape the thought police.
Mine was when my dd's 2nd grade teacher used to page me at work because dd was breaking too many pencil points and needed to use the sharpener too much, resulting in detentions.
It turned out dd was so bored in class she had devised a game where she had "pencil people" living in her desk, a pencil people city. And, best yet, the broken-off pencil points were babies and children!
Her teacher was not impressed with the game.
liberal home schooler ? me ? nah, just a libertarian unschooler.
Kansas State University Ping!
My kids have gone to both private and public schools. I'll take the public schools anytime. Of course, we are in Oklahoma and the kids can pray, sing Christmas carols and are taught phonics, real math, and must diagram sentences.
Bump for pencil people.
I am happy to be one of those large, fantatically religious families who homeschools in conjunction with private school. Yes, to keep my children from the evils of the world.
