Home schooling is not a fad. It's what's best for the group that choose to do this.

Homeschooling predates the public school system in that all schooling originally started in the home. I see the choice that parents are making these days, myself included, to homeschool their children as less of a fad and more of an attempt to return to a more wholesome learning environment. One where the only thing to explode is the soda geyser we just made out in the back yard. One where our children are respected as the tiny humans that they are instead of being just another number sitting at the back of the classroom. Our decision is made by our heart-felt desire to see our children liberated so that they might take flight. Instead of being molded into a perfect little carbon copy of the status quo.
