Mitt Romney (D) MA is so fake this idiot is on Meet the Press Crying about how he was so overwhelmed when the Mormons finally recognized Brown v. Board of Education which was in 1954 and he his crying in 1978 and 2007 about this, Finally letting Black people attend Mormon schools. What a phoney, saying whatever it takes to run for president, How sad and sorry.

My big problem with homeschooling is that many parents who choose to homeschool are not trained in educational practices, philosophy or child development. It's a different story if a parent is a professional educator and chooses to teach their children because they have the appropriate background and skills. If they don't, they are likely shortchanging their children just to avoid teaching them to stay true to their values.
How would Ron Paul feel about home-medicine? Surely intelligent people can read what they need to in books --- all that professional training and experience just isn't necessary. ;)
And, I do know many home schoolers that can't hold down a job or function in society, as well as many who can. It seems to me that the ones who transitioned into secondary schools seem to do the best.
Check out those "Educational Practices" Little Billy, This is a Condom. This is a cucumber. Do you know what we do now? Wow, you are right. It hard to teach someone that.

Home school exists for lower middle class white people who are scared that their daughters will get raped or worse, date black guys. Home schoolers rank about 10% above the main stream student body because th main stream student body factors in blacks.
Home school is prep school for the poor. Since our educational system only teaches stuff to the top 10% of kids anyway, staying home and watching the PTL club is about as good as going to public school and getting your weekly beating and rape.
Could you be a little more racist? I didn't get that.

We organized walk home squads to keep white and Asian kids from being attacked after school. Three of our members required stitches because rocks were thrown at them by a gang of black parents. Martin Luther King`s dream is a night mare. Decent black folks are taking their kids out of these schools as fast as vouchers allow.
The white sheets and hoods probably didn't help things

You know Billr, i have nauseous feeling, about Dr Evil, if gets to be president, not likely, all will be lost, our nation will be serious jeopardy, another nationalistic fascist state. But,if does get control of gov't and have power to sign (all Congress fault giving Bush power) and replace with his own evil facist agendas...; because money, power... will buy anything.
I see a very immediate danger in future, Billr, his dealings with these fascist group and he will but have choice or no choice to put these evil supporters into office; because he owes these fascist a favor and agian money, power ...will buy anything. i don't see him as a principle man with integrity, honesty, virtue... more of Dr Evil with fascist agendas for the descrepit failing America. Hes trying to take advantage when America is at weakest, especially when there are many divisons along political , religious groups ... and when america is economically weak and soon in financial ruin... And, you well know Bill, he will try to take advantage of this opportune situation! It look like another horror history lesson that we can't forget- look to Germany during early part 2oth century! So wake up everyone! Do you feel the same way????
Rest easy now. There's a new and more modern approach to better communication and you need to get right to it ...

They also have higher test scores, and are smarter. I don't know where you get your info, but the only reason not to homeschool is because you can't for some reason.

Wow, so you found out he had some personality flaws... I'm going to tell you a secret: We've all got them... some of us are just better at hiding them that's all. Even if what you said is true (I frankly don't have the inclination to research your statement) King's goal and methods were admirable. Your attempt to discredit everything that he did based on neonazi propoganda really only demonstrates what an idiot you really are. The fact that you are able to navigate using a computer is astounding to me really.

At some point you'll have to let me know what it's like knowing your parents think your a failure.

I know what a waste of time it is. I just wanted to see if he had more bile and hate, or if he could respond in an intelligent and polite manner.

I see that he can't. Oh well.

Actually, I am a Certified Teacher that has decided to homeschool my child. I am familiar with educational practices and philosophies. I taught for 13 years in the public school system and do NOT approve of many of the theories, practices, and disciplinary approaches.

I have a lesson plan book and have designed an age-appropriate curriculum for my child.

I have met many homeschool families that teach their children, meet together in learning "coops", arrange fieldtrips with other homeschool families and network both online and in person in order to discuss current trends in homeschool education.

I do believe that the Public School System is failing our children

Thousands of families are choosing to homeschool or send their children to private schools every year. The numbers keep increasing.

This is a clear message that something is wrong with our public school system!

Check out Yahoo Groups and look for Homeschool Support Groups and read about all of the wonderful activities, learning programs, exchange of ideas and support on the websites!

Don't need to check things out that are obvious to any thinking rational person. You still didn't answer my question! Yes. I am vain!
