Another Reason We Homeschool



This pretty well sums up my public school experience. LOL! I am learning so much by homeschooling my kiddos. I call it my second chance at a quality education. :)

I'm sure people thing I'm so weird that I don't think the No Child Left Behind is the best thing in the world. As a parent who had a child in PS Special Ed (Early Childhood Special Ed), I never saw how it helped him--actually he was falling through the cracks tremendously. When a parent tells the administration that she wants to homeschool her SN child, it doesn't exactly meet with applause. But he's been homeschooled with private therapy for nearly a year and has *finally* developed an entire year within a year! Actually more than a year within a year. Before this, he was basically a face within a group of over 150 other Special Education students and had only developed a few months each year, as well as not getting all the therapies he needed. His current therapists will openly say that he was lost in the school and are often frustrated with his lack of therapies.

I am putting this on Facebook. I am a retired public school teacher and have also been a Director of Christian Education in two churches. This song would be funny if it weren't so sad.

I wrote a book when I retired. In substituting in high school now, students think it is cool that I wrote a book, but they don't like to write because of our state "Florida Writes" test. Future writers may come from those students who have been homeschooled.
