And none of the founding fathers had indoor plumbing, electricity, or computers. We should dump those as well

We're going to keep our electricity, indoor plumbing and computers as we continue to homeschool.

You can dump yours if you'd like. It's still a free country.

Man, what an ignorant post. Are you a public school teacher?

It’s obvious to me that homeschooled children are generally better off than their public school-educated peers. Are you suggesting otherwise? If so, you don’t know what you’re talking about...probably a public schoolteacher.

MMmm... read the rest of the article, wrench. She’s making a multi-level, well-rounded argument based on evidence, and reasonable inferences from evidence, not at all dismissed by a simple-minded one-liner.

Your post could have been written by the uni-bomber.

There's a reason why government schools dropped teaching logic.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The above is a snarky sharp poke in the eye of homeschoolers and homeschooling and contributes nothing but disruption to the conversation. Do you get paid for doing this?

It is a quick talking point and would work well on MSNBC. Did you find this at the NEA website? ( Just wondering.)

Dear wrench,

“And none of the founding fathers had indoor plumbing, electricity, or computers. We should dump those as well”

Why? Indoor plumbing, electricity and computers enhance our standard of living.

On the other hand, public education...

LOL.

For a short time, every now and then, it's useful to dump those conveniences and see how it goes. Hurricane Sandy showed some (prepared) folks that it's not all that bad. Admittedly the water kept running, but electricity and computers weren't all that necessary, however convenient they are.

A lot of folks go camping, and indoor plumbing is found to be not needed, no matter how much more comfortable it is.

Interestly, folks who try home schooling find that it's better than government schools. Unlike indoor plumbing and electricity, it's the government schools that are the easy way out, the Hostess Twinkie form of education - time filling, but not brain filling, and often quite damaging to the poor souls entrusted to it's care.
