    The Boogeyman is coming for you, Tony.

    I think what I was implying is that the educational priorities of homeschool students and the lack of social interaction generally associated with homeschooling often end up displaying themselves via a tendency to be, what may seem to others, overly/unnecessarily critical. It’s completely understandable, just not very tactful.

    I didn’t mean to use such broad strokes, but I can see how it would come across that way. Sorry.

    I honestly don’t care. It’s a dick move.

    a LOT of things happen “only in america” at first, that doesnt make them bad. We have been a people of innovators from the start, our foundation of freedom of expression means that we arent afraid to do things our own way. The fact that our infrastructure had to be built from scratch meant we had to be inventors, but it spreads.

    so… you never saw a shy person in public school… really???? ::raises hand:: i was one, and no, going to public school didnt help. Im STILL shy.

    Yes, you are being racist. The comment about metal detectors and such would have been fine without the “major nigger areas” comment, that makes you look ignorant and that is not something i associate, or WANT associated with homeschooling. So please stop. And if you were homeschooled i will be very surprised and very upset with your parents.

    and i guarantee that i, or someone else on here, who is supporting homeschool will be called to the carpet on account of grammar mistakes sooner or later. As for me, im a self taught typist and dont have the shift key or punctuation memorized from this position, im disabled and lay down much of the time, but someone will still say something. What she said was MILD compared to what ive seen people say and do, and you call her arrogant, and vilify us all on that example? nice.

    hahahahhahahaha… do you know how many times a day i see liberal, college educated people correct others grammar (spelling, punctuation, whatever) over the internet??

    homeschoolers dont generally hide information that doesnt agree with them, they realize anecdotal evidence when they see it. Im here to tell you that you would have been the kid being bullied and kicked around in school, and probably would have ended up even worse off than you are. Were you locked in a closet or something? The vast majority of homeschoolers are much more well adapted than public school kids.

  11. Summer Noybn18 October, 2013 at 7:27 pm

    Nope, but then, i was public schooled. What exactly was your point with this? (by the way, took me about a half a second to find out, which is one of the most important things i teach my kids, information retrieval. Quantum theory must be something you are interested in, or no way would you know who he is either, and learning about fields you are interested in is very important in homeschooling.)

    the difference is when parents teach, any indoctrination is for the good of the child, (at least aimed that way, even when its mistaken) while when the state (through public schools) teaches, indoctrination is for the good of the teacher, or, more often, the good of the government, which is not to say the good of the Country.

    ban will not stop people from trying to hurt or kill other people (look to your own crime rates, and dont stop at “gun crime” try assault, rape, murder, etc. We are big into taking care of ourselves, we have far less police than we have criminals, and a cop is too heavy to carry around, so we keep guns. I will NOT be a victim. Will you?

  14. Summer Noybn18 October, 2013 at 7:07 pm

    travel a little… you assume we havent traveled… usual european attitude toward the “colonies” paternalistic, all knowing, all assuming. America is a big place, you will, of necessity, see varying opinions on most every subject, so yes, we have some who have gun paranoia, while others are against gun bans, usually NOT the same people, though most who are pro gun rightfully know that if you come against a bad guy with a gun, you are going to need one to come out ahead. We also know a gun (c

    what you probably meant by “housekeeper parent” and I have an IQ of 145, made 1450 on the old SAT’s and 32 on the ACT. What someone chooses to do with their life is not a measure of their intelligence. I CHOSE to be a full time wife and mother, I wasn’t forced into it because I couldnt do anything else, and many others, especially those who choose to homeschool are the same. Parents, REAL parents, are undervalued in society, and that is one major reason why society is in such bad shape.

  16. Summer Noybn18 October, 2013 at 6:53 pm

    Having knowledge does not necessarily mean being able to teach it to one other person, much less a room full of disparate personalities with very little discipline. The idea of someone having to be an expert to teach children is a myth, you simply have to have access to the information, which nearly everyone has these days, and be an EXPERT on your STUDENT, which only a parent can be. And how lovely your prejudice against “housekeeper parents” shows you to be. I am a full time mother, (contd)

    are a relatively new thing in the history of the world, and not necessarily an improvement over the old ways. Schools are still needed for parents who cannot or should not homeschool their children, but with proper guidance and good curriculum those are few and far between. By and large, institutional schools are good for cranking out industrial workers, but not so much for producing free thinking, intelligent, innovative human beings.

    A badly educated parent who chooses to educate themselves CAN provide a quality education for their children. But MOST homeschooling parents have a high level of intelligence that allowed them to learn DESPITE a poor educational system, and many have college degrees. A startling amount of professional educators choose to homeschool their own children, that should say much about the system. “their shaking hands” the Parent IS and always SHOULD BE the PRIMARY educator, public schools are (contd

    education seminars… this is where you have learned that education is a “pilar” of nations… Well here in america, we like to think for ourselves, instead of being told what we should think. And those “education seminars” should have taught you that education is not a place or an institution, one can be educated anywhere, and that is what homeschooling is. Europe has been stagnating for centuries while America was innovating, so im not surprised you are behind the curve on this as well.

    In the end, all public school has taught you is how to sit at a desk and take orders all day long, anything else is learned OUTSIDE of school. And while yes, you can make a living at that, if you manage to get the job (competing against a homeschooler you likely wouldnt, many employers and colleges are actively seeking out home schooled applicants, so good luck with that) but without some skill at self starting and self discipline (rather than imposed discipline like school) its a dead end job.

  21. Summer Noybn18 October, 2013 at 4:44 pm

    tell that to the thousands upon thousands of successful homeschoolers in the workplace, or better yet, to your new boss, because many homeschoolers create their OWN work, by starting businesses, writing books, or otherwise using the self motivation, self starting, individuality they learned while homeschooling. Good luck being another corporate drone doing what you are told every minute of the day.

  22. Summer Noybn18 October, 2013 at 4:39 pm

    are very advanced and self motivated, in which case, yay. Again, I went to public school, as did my husband, he to a single school system, myself to many. Everything meaningful that i learned and retain, i learned on my own, either by reading (my mother taught me how when i was 3) by listening to my mom, or by talking to other adults. What school REALLY taught me was that people who are bigger than you can force you to do things you dont want to do. and other not good things.

  23. Summer Noybn18 October, 2013 at 4:31 pm

    And exactly what good is “being able to work in a classroom setting” in real life? In what situation in real life are you going to be sat in a room with 30 people exactly your age and told to do something in exactly the same way as everyone else? As for listening to and following directions, where do you get the idea that this is not a skill taught and used in homeschooling situations? Even if it is a subject you enjoy, you still need to listen and take direction to learn, unless you (contd)

    i WENT to public school, the only thing “working with people you might not get along with” taught me, is that if i wanted to pass the class, i had to do all the work MYSELF. The teachers had neither the time nor the inclination to make sure we “worked together” as long as the work got DONE. Meanwhile, what did that teach the other kids in my group? That if they sit back and do nothing, eventually someone smarter than they will come do it for them. And yes, this is born out in the workplace.

  25. Summer Noybn18 October, 2013 at 4:23 pm

    the thing is, honors kids like you are the EXCEPTION that prove the rule in public schools, while excellence is the NORM in homeschooled kids, while failure is the exception that proves the rule.
