Homebound is authorized by a medical dr because of medical condition. You can't get homebound services just because you have decided to pull them out of public school. You need to contact whoever you are homeschooling them through and get them on the ball. There is a difference between HOMEBOUND and HOMESCHOOLING. Good luck.

You want them out of public school, but want public school to provide homebound services to them? Talk about arrogant! Look at your last sentence and you will see why you should leave your children in public school......"until there homeschooling goes threw". You may need to be reported to DHS for abuse to your children. Your arrogance is only superceded by your ignorance and stupiditity! Please...by all means...raise our test scores and TAKE THEM OUT!

I am trying to understand why a local teacher would talk like that.I really hope you are not a teacher in any local school system. If you are please take some time off and find some peace in your life and get your compassion and love for your fellow man back. Good luck and may God help you

I am indeed a teacher in Grainger County, and am fed up with parents like this who will not see that their children do what is necessary to stay in school, learn, pass, and move on to the next grade. Just another parent who wants the school system to pay for her kids to be at home. If they had a true reason for homebound, this poor excuse for a parent would not be on here trying to find out how to do it so she can get them out and homeschool. Truth is, I'll bet they are getting ready to go to juvenile court for truancy, and their grades are horrible because they have no support or help at home for their education! Feel sorry for this person? You need a good dose of reality and the truth. If this were a legitimate need for homebound, the school would be pushing for it as well! It is not legitimate and this is just another stab at trying to bleed the schools of money that is needed for students who are being taught at school and at home, to be CONTRIBUTING members of society instead of members who think it is their constitutional right for a free ride on everything. You need to get yourself educated on all of this, and you would be outraged as well!

You go girl! It is about time somebody with some sense tells the truth. Schools are for educating children to become productive members of society-not a breeding ground for ignorance and freebies.

May I THANK YOU for this post. Yes...my first post was a rant. I have them often these days. I am sick and tired of having time taken away from helping children who WANT TO LEARN to do just that to deal with children who don't want to be at school in the first place! Where did they learn this behivior? At home...of course! There are parents who "work with" teachers and school to help their children "learn". Often the child and parent have to do things they don't like. Guess what! We all have to deal with that every day! That's just life! The problem is with these parents who sit at home, living off our paychecks, and have time to cry, complain, and cause problems just because things don't go their way. They take time away from everyone else. The number of these parents/kids grows every year. Soon, that's all that will be there. They threaten homeschooling, but none in THIS GROUP have sense enough to teach their kids at home. They've already registered enough proof of that. Thank You again for this response.

Well....have you removed your children from public school? If not, please hurry! TCAP testing is coming up! We need them to be gone before that happens! When you have them properly educated at home with your homeschooling, bring them back and teach the rest of us who have 4, 6, 8, and greater years of college, and tens of years of experience educating children! Let me say THANK YOU to all you parents who are doing the right thing with your children by keeping them in school, being truly involved in their education, and for supporting their teachers and schools. You do not know how much it is appreciated! People like "motherofthree" are taking valuable teaching time from your children's teachers, and is damaging their educational opportunities. "motherofthree" is not the only parent trying, and often succeeding at, to cause problems for YOUR CHILD'S EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY! How much longer are the GOOD parents going to put up with this? We are powerless, and have tried for years to shut these people up. It's time for some of you to get involved in standing up to parents like "motherofthree" in front of the Board of Education publically demanding that their complaining be ignored! Support your Board of Education, support your children's school-teachers-principals, and demand that parents like "motherofthree" be ignored instead of encouraged!

First you might want to spell correctly. It is through, not threw. And sentences start with capital letters. And you are going to homeschool? LOL!

WOW. What school do you teach at? Because I would love to shake your hand. Seriously. Two thumbs up to you.

First, the teacher at Grainger...goodness gracious, are you forgetting about teaching social skills to these children who otherwise wouldn't have been exposed to such manners. You sound not only judgmental, but pretty mean too. Glad I missed out on your class when I went to Grangier schools. Whew. I am pretty sure I'd remember such an arrogant witch-like personality. I have seen many, many parents pull kids out of decent instructional environments because of horrible teachers like yourself. If this bad-spelling parent had been exposed to a better educational experience herself (likely from Grainger too, I'm guessing)...then perhaps she wouldn't see homeschool as her only option. Homebound programs can be good or bad, and thankfully the kids that need the programs are generally exposed to them. Grow up. Get over your educated self. There is much more to life than you horrid, self-righteous attitude. Hopefully, you will never be in need of public assistance. You are not promised one more second in your perfect world. Your type of ignorance is the worst kind...cause it stems from an ugliness within and is 100% avoidable. Open your eyes because eventually the way you act will turn right around and bite your hind end.

To the MotherofThree,
Please don't abuse the homebound program! Homebound is for students medically qualified. However, there are hundreds og great homeschool resources that are available to parents who want to dedicate their time to their children's education in a home environment. You spelled the word "threw" correctly, but used it improperly in the sentence you wrote. So, with that said, I would recommend using a pre-built curriculum, preferrably a video/streaming one (such as Abeka, or Bob Jones, etc)...or one that provides grading support as well as curriculum level monitoring. While some are quite costly, there are many that are less expensive and maybe a few that are even free. Do YOUR homework before you decide on a program for you kids. If you decide to put your kids back in school later and you haven't kept up with state reqs, then you will be doing harm to your child's ability to thrive or keep up in school. With that said, it sounds like you want to take your children out of a bad situation and I think thats an awesome move! I wish you every good thing in pursuing a safe education for your loved ones. Maybe you can really benefit yourself. I've seen a few homeschool moms learn right along with their kids. I think its great to teach the kids that education is key and should never end! No one knows everything like the "teacher" acts like. We can all afford to learn something new each day!(some of us just need to focus on humility and manners in general)

Evidently you have no clue as to the education system apart from being a student in it. How do you know I'm a horrible teacher? Guess what? I have completely full rosters every class I teach of students with parents who want their kids in my class, who know the caliber of teacher I am, and know their kids will get a quality education from me. Please Mr. PhD, tell us, using your vast education, what allows you to deduce that I am a horrible teacher just because I put a parent in her place? Arrogant? I'm an experienced teacher, hold both a BS and MA from top class Universities, along with several other certifications in fields outside education. You don't want to go there, trust me. My credentials would truly make yours look "Piled higher and Deeper"! My students learn the best of social skills. You may need to check with my superiors on that one. All this because I unloaded on another welfare parent looking for another check by seeking homebound services AT TAXPAYERS EXPENSE, when it is evident there is nothing wrong with her children except a very shallow gene pool, so she can homeschool them and make them even more ignorant that she is. How in the world did you get that PhD anyway, if you don't know any more than this?

I work for the Director of Schools and the Board of Education. They meet every month. It matters nothing what they think of my post. I'm not under their supervision, am not being paid, so I'll say what I wish. Now, here's what you are going to do....you are going to either put up with it or else you are going to do something about it. Good luck either way.

Teacher you are my hero. I love how you put these whinebuckets in their places-YOU GO GIRL! They act like they own teachers-who have a life outside of school. Last I checked, this was still America where Do they think the school system has the power and authority to reprimand you for your opinion on your own time? Keep throwing it right back at them-they deserve it.
