These are our children, they don’t belong to the state. We are given the job by God, to raise them to be responsible truthful adults. As loving parents, why should we ship them off for 8 or 10 hours a day to be influenced by strangers and then be saddled with the task of correcting the ideas of Evolution, Homosexuality and Environmentalism that they were exposed to all day. This is akin to throwing them in the ceptic tank in the morning, pulling them out in the afternoon, washing them off and then throwing them back in the next morning.
We pulled our son from government schools in California after he finished 2nd grade and we have never looked back. He is now in 7th grade. We use Abeka Academy corriculum. Excellent accredited Teachers are on DVD in a classroom setting, teaching every subject from Bible to Science. It costs a little over $1 thousand a school year and worth every penny.( I wish we could get vouchers for property tax payed to government schools). A.C.E. is also a good christian corriculum and is less expensive. But Abeka better suits our needs.

I said the same thing the other day but then some very smart FRiends reminded me that if they gave any kind of tax bennies, it will open the government to put their nose into the program more than they are already. The 1,000 bucks paid with no tax breaks or vouchers is worth having the government stay out of homeschooling.
I think our curriculum cost around $700 a year. We spend about 5 month’s picking it out thought.
I agree about debrainwashing them. I had to spend hours just showing my kids the truth after they would come home from public school. I am still cleaning the B.S. they were taught out 3 years later.
