It is the same as adoption. Why do they look for their
parents?
When a pregnancy is aborted, there is no child. What is it that you don't understand about the definition of abortion?

<quoted text>Well put. I know one family that homeschooled their children properly. These kids participated in 4-H, band and other extracurricular activities, as well as worked at the family business. Grandparents, aunts and uncles were heavily involved in the kids' upbringing. Great family, great kids. This family is a rarity, and this scenario is uncommon with homeschooled children, unfortunately.
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.

There is a child. The child is put to sleep. Babies are
born every day. The child can wake up.
Why are Germans barbarians?
Hitler made up abortion? Retardation?
Out casting and killing. Murder.
This man was so dumb and all the dumb dumbs that followed him.

Well yes..But there is conflict and then conflict ..I worked three jobs sometimes,to pay for private school
Till I got one that paid s bit better ..Was still a struggle ..And in high school she got some help from the school fund .
Had a school principal where I ALMOST enrolled her..tell me if THERR was any way I could afford to kerp her out of the public schools ..it would be better ..And her school.Was a good one ..But the next up middle school was not good .
So I did it ..then used grants..loans and scholarships for college as the principal advised...And she had the Highest rated Elementary in the area!!!!
How can one use a scholarship fpor college for a parochial grade sachool? Most have God parent programs. Your post is not believable.

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.

What are you talking about??

We used scholarships and grants,and loans,for COLLEGE .
As the principal suggested

She said if my girl got a good education..She would be accepted into ANY COLLEGE she applied to...And we would figure out how to pay for it as the Colleges,want the kids with good background and grades,
SHE WAS RIGHT

I used what money I could get to pay for her grade,And high school.

Christian . And the school helped with their small fund for people without money who they wanted as students ..

She did very well..thank God ..

American parents are generally lazy, when it comes to their personal involvement in their children's education. That's my observation and my opinion. I'm sure many people disagree. That's cool.

As with every thing ..it IS the parents,...guiding them .

I'm glad my girl went to Christian school...But this,online thing if it's regulated ..they most likely HSVE networks,like the home schoolers
Do fir interaction and sports ..And yes they HSVE to take the standardized tests

Anything ..including vouchers that cuts,d own class,size,...IMO..would help each child get more teacher attention ..

This may be one reason the home schoolers do well.

I told my girl ..if you don't understand something ...ASK ..THAT'S,what you are there for...

You know how Shy kids are ..afraid to ask..She was an A student ..if she didn't get it..pretty sure most didn't ..or I told her ask after school .

I could help her with reports,...writing spelling..some history .
Do the flash cards,..But she passed me in math around seventh grade.

She taught me ..Lol

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.

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?

What's your point knit.

Went through the whole process many times ...

I said the,principal was correct ..a good education along with good grades ..gets you into the college of your choice ..then the rest for the money ..
