<quoted text>How can one use a scholarship for college for a parochial grade school? Most have programs. Your post is not believable.
Parochial school is getting expensive. They are getting
greedy. Public school can improve but they do not try.
Demeaning children by scolding and hurting them
is their way of teaching. They turn them into bullies.
How can they learn anything if they are always afraid?

<quoted text>The Colleges do not hand out scholarships until they take the college entrance exam in the junior /senior year of high school, they not only HAVE to take the test, they have to have a high grade to get into the better schools. Then they have to file forms and fill out the FAFSAform and also have last years Income Tax forms. Most teenagers now also have to volunteer and have no police record. Most students who go for leadership positions in high school can expect to get good grants and scholarships. Also if the student is poor, they get a full pell grant with other loans nd grants, the loans they have to pay off including the parent plus loans. No one gets any scholarship until they take the SAT or ACT.

Go to sleep, dear. It's obviously all to much for your brain. No woman's abortion is your business, anyway.

<quoted text>What proof do we have that that scenario is uncommon? To be perfectly honest, the families I've been exposed to or have interacted with, who homeschool their kids, are very similar to the one you describe. In fact, the children to whom I refer score consistently higher on their standardized testing (yes, in my state officially home-schooled children must ALSO take the standardized test which the state mandates for that grade) than their public school counterparts...and one of the families is VERY well socialized, as their business takes them to every corner of the country.
Home schooling, like public schooling, is WHAT WE MAKE OF IT.
Both my children graduated at the tops of their classes, and both went to public schools....but their home-schooled compatriots have higher SAT scores. Just saying.
I homeschooled mine for a few years, in two different states. They too participated in outside activities, and scored very well on the standardized testing in VA. MD doesn't require it, but someone from the BOE came and interviewed me, the kids, and looked at the work they'd done for the year. Unfortunately, I then had to put them back into public school. BUT, they'd learned by then how to teach THEMSELVES, and did very well.

I met quite a few homeschoolers over the years, and I'd say the situation is not as cut and dry as some believe. There were many whose kids were doing great, at both learning AND socializing. Most, though, not so much. And I'm convinced the reason parents homeschool makes the difference.

Too many are homeschooling because they DON'T want their kids exposed to any ideas/beliefs but their own. And those kids are at a disadvantage, because they DON'T socialize, or only socialize with the kids of parents who share the same beliefs.

Like I said it's not cut and dry, as my story, and your own, shows. What it IS, is a very controversial subject that can really cause fights among people online, much like the subject of spanking :)

It's not for the faint of heart, the lazy, or the narrow minded...on that, we seem to agree. If you don't mind my asking, what reason did the BOE give for requiring your kids go back to public school...or was that a personal decision due to time constraints, etc.?

Oh, no, the BOE didn't require it. That was a decision I made due to the fact that I had to go back to work, and didn't have the time to devote to school.

So now you know most homeschoolers to base an opinion on? How do you know that "too many" are homeschooled because parents don't want kids exposed to any ideas/beliefs but their own OR that they are at a disadvantage OR that they "DON'T " socialize OR only socialize with families who share similar beliefs?

It takes alot of time and energy to homeschool so I would assume that the parents aren't "lazy or fsint of heart".

There is alot of bullying happening in schools today(especially middle/junior high HS) and from what I hear, parents have no choice but to take their kids out. I think the schools are not doing enough to address this.

Calm your Drama Queen ass down.

Yes, in my experience, which is vaster than anyone who has NOT homeschooled, then most are doing so to avoid beliefs/ideas not their own. They are QUITE clear about that when you speak to them, whether in person, OR online. They are, in fact, QUITE proud of the fact that the only other kids THEIR kids socialize with ARE of families with the same type of beliefs. Mostly religious.

Why are tests so important? Sorry but the teachers are a joke.
The child can just read the book and learn on his own
like in college. Maybe that is why teachers don't make
much of a paycheck. The students do good on the tests
because they are smart. All of them are.
Public school will never give them what a good private
school does.(Catholic) The teachers have more sense.
Children get lost in public school. No respect.
The teachers in private (Catholic) schools have more sense?????
