We're revisiting the viability of homeschooling.
Ours is very bright but he has a fine motor delay and is super aware of it and it makes him choose all kinds of avoidance techniques in the classroom. The lastest is to simply outright refuse to participate because he can't fail if he doesn't try in the first place.
Did I mention he is also strongly perfectionist?
Needless to say we are all tearing our hair out over this, but we can get him to do work at home. So do we try to figure out how to homeschool until his writing skills catch up with his mind?
They serve US... we don't BOW to them

Here is some interesting insight into the world of homeschooling
I was trained for the culture wars in home school
Homeschooling is the perfect environment to become political training camps. It actually scares me that religious fundamentalists are organizing at this level. If liberals are smart it would behoove them to start looking into using these same tactics to keep pace with the bible thumpers. I really don't want to see this country take 2 steps backwards in regards to social equality and civil rights but alas it looks like the damn has sprung a leak and is ready to blow any moment.
