i know, that's what the kicker is. I have 3 cousins, aged 7-11, who live in Vermont and are the smartest children I have ever met. One of them already has 3 published books (the 9 year old).

I don't agree with banning homeschooling, however, I do think parents should at least be required to receive some kind of training so their children can get a good education. The public school system is failing right now, but some (not all) parents are even worse.

These are not the ones that are homeschooling. And it's not like the children won't have to meet set standards in order to further their academic career.

I was homeschooled for 2 months in middle school. What a joke!! I say make it difficult to conduct...don't "ban" it, but make it very tough to happen. Parents should absolutely be held to the same standards to teach at home as teachers in the school systems.

That's just backwards thinking! More and more colleges are adjusting to homeschooled children in their Admissions protocol. Whyban something that actually works?

As long as the program is accredited and the student is passing the course, then the gov't should butt out!!!

Our schools are garbage and even the kids that TRY to learn get left behind.

yeah, much better that the government decide what a child should learn and not the parents.

I am against this. I don't think the government should be taking away any more of our freedoms.

I believe that is what this about in the first place...the destruction of our rights and our individuality. What will the government do without their indoctrination centers?
