One of those thing is not like the others. Unless you are trying to see if there is a correlation with homeschooling and 6K year old flat earth.
Encyclopedia Bump is ON THE CASE!!!

The private school I attended had a building that was once a villa, so in a way I guess I could vote yes.

no one in my area was home schooled. It was not a thing.
We did have a couple of Catholic Private schools. One was BIG. Carroll Kempur. Iowa.

But in rural areas, the school is a center of the town. Here in the MPLS suburbs, our school has less people at a football game than Kempur did.

I guarantee you that there is absolutely a correlation between home schooled individuals and belief in the 6k year old earth. The flat earth thing, I don't know...

I went to a private Catholic School Grades 1-8 but a public K. My mom wanted to put me in this highly thought of Catholic High School which horrified me. I had to visit and go on the interviews but at home would beg to go to the local public HS--just so I wouldn't have to wear another uniform. That was my whole basis. I persevered and won out.

After my first summer job, I took bus/subway into downtown Boston and spent all my money on the latest fashions, shoes and all, that she would never let me wear because of the cost. That's why I wanted to go to the local public HS.

I did teach my daughter at home how to read starting with a tutor at age 4; then took it over before she entered K. Then I did HS her last 2 years of HS, because she begged me to. After being in a private school to age 16, I had her enrolled in a baccalaureate school that was publicly funded, but she didn't want to make all new friends mainly. She got me when I found out about student deaths from drugs that year. I'm really glad I did because I was able use content for the state's govt and economics requirements I preferred she learn and warn her how to spot Marxist professors before she went to college. She didn't become a leftist--but all her roomates and friends were except for one. She never got into it with them, which I warned about.

Just make sure you check those textbooks, because the textbook industry slips that stuff in too. I had to do that before I made my final choice for my daughter. One had several pages of Marilyn Monroe and a short paragraph on George Washington. :-)

I recall my daughter's first school, a private one I used for kindergarten, the principal told me she had to refuse a textbook salesman, who's pitch told her that she had gays in her school so the new books covered gay issues. It was a Christian school he was pitching these books too. That was late 90's. It has to be worse now.

Thank goodness we have quality Private Schools for those who can afford them or for kids who get scholarships.

I understand the home school approach but see how narrow the education is when you don't have exposure to different views and learn to evaluate things in a logical informed manner. Those kids are cheated out of one of the great benefits of a education that offer options and insight you cant get from HomeSchooling

Obviously, you know NOTHING about the homeschooling movement. It is the typical narrow-minded view of a statist. Yet you're making the case for exposures to different views. If that includes disguised socialism, drag-queen story hours, education about trannies then you're way off the mark. That's what they're exposed to for other views.

My own daughter in her last two years of homeschooling included a course in the world's religions. I took her on field trips to churches, synagogues, and a Buddhist ashram. She learned about Shintoism, Baha'i et al. So you are wrong. It just depends on the content of each curriculum. There's variety among this movement.

Public schools are no longer what they were and they are denied access to the philosophy on which this country was founded which I call Americanism. Besides that they do not even get a good education in basic reading and comprehension. You should pick up a copy of Change Agents in the Schools.

Don't give me the other tired argument about socializing the child because those kids are better behaved and there's communities in the HS movement to interact with other kids, for sports and for social events including proms.

Crkey! Are you even a conservative or a Republican. Funny thing is, the original homeschoolers were actually liberals who started what was called the "unschooling" movement. There's a difference between being "schooled" and being educated.

BTW F150, homeschools are just considered a private sschool by the federal govt. Because that's what they really are.

They're not all that expensive and most give discounts to a second or third child. It doesn't have to be something that Bill Gates sent his kids to at $25k per year each.

I'd say it's more like parents prefer a large house with a big mortgage, two expensive cars, trips for the parents and not so cheap vacations every year for themselves instead of making sacrifices.

If a black mother can pull her kid out of a public school, see her kid who was failing turned around, do better and enjoy school for a change, by working three jobs to keep her son in one--then materialistic parents can make some sacrifices. This was a mother at my kid's private school.

I had to make sacrifices like giving up a second car and even emptying my bank account out a few times to keep my daughter in one that ran me between $8-9k per year starting in 1998. Her previous school was only $500 a month for 9 months. But then I had to pay for a summer camp outside of that. Yet these same parents who say they can't afford it, paid for day care when their kids were younger and pay for summer camps so they can work.

There are also parents that share the responsibility with other parents if one mom has to work. Of course it's easier in the HS years as there's on-line classes, and they should have the ability to do self-directed study by then if they had sound basics.
