    I think alot has to do with the fact that schools are overcrowded , meaning your children dont get the attention deserved.... Also schools are breeding grounds for sickness and germs... My folks homeschooled for both these reasons.. And if I wasnt a single dad working full time my Boys would be too.

    Homeschoolers tend to be earthy types and there's nothing earthier than a coop full of chickens!

    There are many people here who think alike in many ways. We all have
    different political and religous backgrounds but most of us all have
    similiar standards, especially when it comes to loving our kids and
    wanting the best for them.

    I don't homeschool, but like CoopCrazy, wish I could.

    Homeschooled people enjoy the simple pleasures of life, like chickens and chatting with others of a like mind.

    I have noticed a lot on here [​IMG]

    I was home schooled. I am the youngest of 7 kids and with a family that big... Let's just say I grew up POOR!
    I have been working as a substitute teacher since last fall and I agree with what CoopCrazy wrote: schools are overcrowded and full of germs! LOL
    Seriously... There is NO reason why classes should have more than 15-20 kids in them. When there are 28-30 kids in one class, there isn't enough teacher to go around!

    1) No one cares more for your child than you do.
    2) Schools aroundhere have gone to hell in handbasket lately,. 56% drop out rate average for high schools in my area. that is appaling
