ok so there’s a pattern of interest here that i’m sure anyone that has read any number of my posts is getting…i’m a bit obsessed with the topic of education right now. as well i should be, considering i am the one responsible for my children’s education (being the primary caregiver and homeschooler).
well someone just shared this article with our local homeschool egroup. wow. i mean i knew already that our nation’s education system was messed up but to have more specifics just really was interesting and horrifying at the same time.
particularly this part where the author says that (the dominant education reform current):
Yet again another reason that I am glad to be a homeschooler. And yet, I cannot completely wash my hands of the public school issue. Because, as someone so eloquently pointed out on one of my homeschooling groups…many of the children that our children associate with are being educated in the public schools. Most of the adults that our children will grow up to work with, have relationships with, have their own children with will have been greatly influenced by the public school system. It’s enough to give me a headache.
Ay yi yi, I can’t think any further on this today. Here’s another good read that approaches the issue on a more personal level. Now I need a break from this dilemma. Its too depressing right now.
