Am I the only freeper who lives in a good school system?
I monitor closely what goes on in our school. I am more than pleased with what I have seen so far.
I watched as my children learned math in a way I thought was very good, and I WAS happy with it. The pace is a little slower than my kids could handle, but ti fill their free time with other activites like music and gardeingn and hiking and travel
I would suggest you search FR for the keyword “ARTH” - the “Another Reason to Homeschool” articles get that keyword attached. Most of the stories seem to come out of pretty good school districts. Even if it doesn’t change your mind, it will give you more concrete things to watch for.
I grew up in a “good” school district where there were pipe bombs found at the high school, horrible Ecstasy problems, and all sorts of weird stuff that I heard about from my publicly schooled friends.
NO, you are not, but like me, you will be called not only a liar but an enabler of this nonsense.
Some of this crap may go on in some school districts, but the haters of public schools on this forum believe there is no such thing as a good public school system and those of us with children in them or who teach in them are nothing less than child abusers.
