>>Are there great students who are homeschooled? You bet!
Are there great students who are publically schooled? You bet!

Just because one exists, it doesn’t mean the other cannot.<<

Absolutely!!!!

However, I’m paying for both. I want what works. When we get back to the world ranking for education that we had in the 60’s, we can talk about how great the education is in Public Schools.

And when we have parents that actually take the time to be parents instead of their kids friends like we had in the 60's maybe schools could go back to being institutions of education instead.

The vast majority 60-70 percent of my students are either in single parent homes or living with one step parent. Broken homes create broken kids.

And yes I do have access to the records on this and my numbers are valid.

As a consumer you have a right to have what you are paying for work.

I’ve said many times that the best thing for schools would be for all parents, those that homeschool, use private schools, or public schools to be active at the school board level.

It doesn’t take much ‘salt’ to make the whole loaf rise.

Demographics drive test results worldwide. US students rank on par with their peers globally when racial categories are compared. No, our schools don’t maximize the potential of too many students, but racial changes since the 60’s explain much of the US ranking globally.
