I didn't bash it I pointed out the only instance I knew of it. I also pointed out that parental involvement usually dictates a student's success. Topix.com is loaded with such a bunch of professional victims on this redneck website.

Not in English,they aren't ! You don't know the difference between "your" and "you're ! I agree the public school system is lacking, but, without the proper background, parents home schooling is not the answer. You can have all of the "outings" you want, but home schooled children are still lacking the total socialization of being around all different children. Their experience is limited. They are not at all prepared for the real world and all that is involved in being a part of society.

What they so not know is a lot of public schools are offering cyber schooling too which parents play a huge role in. I chose to use a private cyber school for two of my children. I also have two that are in public school yet and one in college. It all depends on the dedication of the parent and child that are attending the cyber schools. If you choose to succeed you will but if you don't pay attention and do the work you will fail. Personally I feel cyber schooled children have a lot more work than public school.

To adem111 hello you are right i have stated before on an earlier post about parents playing a role in their childrens education.Edu cation does not begin and end at the school gates it starts and stops in the home.A parents role in education is indeed a very important one.And yes a child can and will learn more when home schooled because you can teach your children subjects that are not taught in state/public schools.Plus home schooled children are not under the control of what the government wants your children to learn-good luck.Ps interesting place of posting Bhopal-Union Carbined how are things in Bhopal these days what happened there was a crime against humanity i remember it well.Takecare adem111.

I see pro's and con's. I was mostly home schooled I was to sick to go to school when I was in elementary I finally went back in junior high I was 2 years ahead of my class. I begged my parents to take me out and be tutored like some of my other cousins. My mother wanted the traditional american experience. Then high school hit I would get detention or what they had ISS which is in school detention.many times I faked asthma attacks to get out of school. I always had my mom pickup my schoolwork to do at home. I maintained a 4.0 average. Luckily my grandparents saved me every summer to museums and teaching me subjects that are not taught til college level. although I understand the social problem. Now days they have home school communities that have around other children. I wished I had that!

To hinder popular belief I am college graduate I wished I did have the social part into it. All my friends are older than me or Asian. I did almost flunked my first year of college. I can't learn in a classroom setting very well. I can study give me research assignments, paper, send me the textbooks just don't require me other than show up to take the exams or I will fail. Luckily I studied hard and tested out many things. I am not a great speller or grammar. That is also not a big part into my degree's except the communication one. It's called spell check. I believe home school works I never learned a damn thing in public school.

I'm sorry, Buddy, but you need more than Spell Check. What you've written is all but incoherent.

Is my English really that bad? I thought my sister was kidding but you're not the first on who said something I apologize. Maybe My sister was right it has been along time my English is getting a little rusty. My own native tongue that is the sad part. Well if you don't use it I guess you lose it. Please tell me I got that one right! Hopefully I figured the forums prove to my sister but I was wrong. I do apologize to everyone I am not an idiot well maybe. I forgot my own native tongue. I promise eventually I hope I get it.
