|This goes out to 123.
Some homeschooled kids. HAVE to leave school. for different reasons, and are still trying it get an education. It does not mean they are going ot work at mcdonalds. And does going ot normal school stop you from working at mcdonalds. in year 10, a massive percentage of kids drop out of normal schools and aspire to nothing. I am doing home schooling and i know what i want in life. I am doing my VCE years in a regular school, but up until then i am going ot work as hard as i can.
You have no right to say homeschooled kids are dumb. and will never leave home.
And you must be the sharpest tool in the shed to say they end up in prison! High school is where alot of drugs and illeagal things happen, not in your household.
seriosuly... get a life. ↑

|I was homeschooled and I'm fine. I visited this board a few days ago and felt it was being abused by antihomeschoolers whom I thought don't belong here. I'm 27 with a career and a husband. We are expecting our first child in October. I have never been on drugs and have friends with whom I had fun with. I have no problems holding my own in intelligent conversations and don't feel as if I missed out on anything growing up. I plan on homeschooling my own children as I saw it an important and positive part of my upbringing. ↑

|I can testify to one thing and that is that the public school system are failing our kids by allowing them to pass through to the next grade when they don't even understand the material they were just taught. My friends daughter has not passed since kindergarten and she is now in the fith grade. My cousin also failed all the way through high school and still he graduated. I realize not all schools are like this, there are some very awesome teachers, who are very dedicated to helping their students. Hats off to you. ↑

|WOW THAT WAS GOOD!!! DIRECT AND TO THE POINT! I JUST STARTED HOMESCHOOLING MY DAUGHTER AND INTEND TO TO HOMESCHOOL MY SON THIS YEAR. I CAN'T SAY THAT I'M WELL EDUCATED I HAVE A GED WITH SOME COLLEDGE UNDER MY BELT. BUT I HAVE TO SAY I KNOW I'M DOING A BETTER JOB THAN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS BECAUSE THEY ARE A JOKE!!! THEY HAD MY DAUGHTER IN A LEARNING DISABLED CLASS WHEN SHE WAS TESTED BY THE K-12 CORRESPONDANCE TO BE WELL OVER HER GRADE LEVEL. THE MANE DIFFERENCE THAT I CAN SEE IS THAT THE PARENTS CARE. IF MY CHILD IS HAVING A PROBLEM WITH SOMETHING I CAN ADRESS IT THERE NOT PUSH ON TO SATISFY THE STATISTICS. LETS FACE IT MAJORITY RULES AND IF A CHILD FALLS BEHIND THEY STAY THERE! ↑

|well i think that public schools give kids exposure to the REAL world...not that of the parents thoughts. Ive grown up going to a public high school...and i know plenty of homeschooled kids....they dont have many REAL friends and or life experiences.
yes they might learn faster and better than us...but they need to get a chance to choose for themselves. im very sorry if i have different thoughts than you. but i actually like getting to know people and getting to have relationships....and also...what parents think is ethical, is not always the answer to all of lifes problems...so i do think it is stupid to not give your kids a chance to live life.....and i can have my own thoughts.thanks ↑

|I am homeschooled. I actually do cyber school. This is now my second year! I have friends and I'm not afraid to speak to anyone. I think it is important to let your kids make their own decision. I think it's a wise idea for your child to attend a public school and meet people their age and socialize. If your child is being home schooled they need to go out with friends around their age and learn what lifes about. You can't protect your kids from bullies if that's what your trying to do. They will experience them in everyday life but they need to experience that. They'll be able to handle the situation better after dealing with it. I don't think home schooling is a bad choice but honestly public schooling is a better choice. I think your child will be much happier, outgoing, and more active at that! ↑

|I cyber school. And honestly, it's been a great experience. I don't have the stress of public school. And my grades have gone WAY up. I may only be 14...but I do have an opinion. And here it is, cyber schooling is great. And home schooling is too. I was home schooled the first 2 years of my school career. So if anyone has an issue with schooling from home. GET OVER IT!!! If you don't do it...then leave the people who do home school their kids alone. ↑

|Excuse me, but I currently attend a public school, which prides itself in a nationally ranked "tradition of excellence." Ever since elementary school, I have learned responsibilities, both academic and social, inside and out of school. These opportunities, provided by my exceptional education have successfully integrated me into a society in which I can meaningfully contribute. Although school takes up a majority of my day, I still spend quality time with my family. My parents are not the only adults who influence my life, however. Because of my public education, I have learned to work with teachers, coaches, administrators, and most importantly, my peers. These characteristics, given to me by my public education, will greatly benefit me and the world in the future. ↑

|I just wanted to say that I was homeschooled from K-9 and then finished up in a private school. I love being homeschooled, but I also loved going to private school. They both did me a ton of good. I didn't have any trouble going from homeschool to private school. My other two brothers and two sisters were homeschooled K-12. One brother graduated top of his graduating class in college and is now in the top of his class in the University of Pittsburgh. my youngest sister is graduating from high school this May and is making wonderful grades. On the other hand, I know a couple of kids that are being homeschooled right now and the PARENTS aren't doing a good job at teaching their children. That I DON'T agree with. Whether or not you home school or not is all a matter of what the child's personalilty is and how you as the parents, do it. ↑

|My aunt teaches her 3 at home. They are supposed to be in 5th, 6th and 8th grade. But she is teaching them 4th grade work. And that is "too hard". The kids say "its too hard" she drops a grade to make it easier. The 6th grader is doing 1st grade reading and writing. The 8th grader can't spell any better than a 3rd grader. So tell me how homeschooling is teaching them anything? ↑

|Your last sentence is the highlight of your post. I was home schooled... and would love to have these people who have never experienced it to read my story. Some of the story is on the thread called "What Are Your Reasons For Home Schooling Your Kid?" So, check it out! :-) ↑
