ONE of the reasons I homeschooled

I saw this on another blog this morning. It's not the only reason I chose to bring my daughter home from school at the end of her second grade year, but it was certainly an important one. My only regret is that I missed homeschooling her kindergarten through second grade years.

This is really scary when some legislation comes up now and again to test home-schoolers too! We just defeated a bill like that here in Tennessee.

Great video!

When I think about what life would be like for my two boys in public school, I shiver with fear.

Thanks for sharing it, Renna!

Waaaahhhh! Stuff like this makes me feel guilty. But, I want to whine, my daughter's school isn't THAT bad, is it?

Well, it probably is, (though her teacher seems better) but I just can't even comprehend how you guys do it. School keeps me sane!

I suppose a lot depends on the school. My children received an excellent education which included opportunities in music, theatre, debate, athletics and computer technology, as well as advanced academic studies. I do not like that teachers are forced to teach to the test, but all in all, I couldn't be happier with our public school experience.

What a lullaby! That's a great way to make some important points in a lighthearted way. Thanks! I'll be sharing this one.

May I clarify? :o)

I've had 2 in PS and 2 homeschooled. Both options are/were right for us.

I apologize if I sounded like a snob. :o(

Amy, I don't think you sounded like a snob. You're far too sweet a person to ever sound snobbish.

Sad, but true. That's also one of the many reasons I homeschool. Thanks for sharing the video!
