I know this can be a sensitive subject, and I'm not super opinionated about it. I think everyone needs to do what is best for their family and if you think homeschooling is the way, that's fine. I have friends who were homeschooled and have friends who currently homeschool their kids. But, I saw this online today. I thought, "Wow, that's harsh."
Props for the creative analogy, but it's harsh. Hahahaha, then I actually had to laugh because directly above this picture, was the title "Myth's of Homeschooling" and I did get my education from a public school, but I'm pretty sure that is supposed to by "Myths of Homeschooling." Yes, actually I'm positive and if I'm wrong, then I'll homeschool my kids.
I think plenty of successful people receive their education from a public school. Also, plenty of successful people are homeschooled.
I loved my public school experiences. I had teachers who cared about me and really made a difference in my life. I know it's not a perfect system, but it's not a bad one either.
Especially being the wife of a teacher, I know Devin really cares if his students succeed. In fact, last Friday, we had to cancel dinner plans because he was at the school until 7:30 working. May I also add that he did/does NOT get paid extra for those hours. Oh, and it's not like his regular salary is anything to brag about either. But he chose to do it because he loves to teach and see children grow, learn, and understand. I know all teachers don't care that much, but it's not fair to say that none of them do.
I don't believe it's a accurate claim to say that a child's only chance at survival in the real world is if they receive their education from home. Like I said, for some people, homeschooling works really well and their kids are smart and grow up to do fabulous things. I just think that pic is a little radical. What do you think?
