....I was tall and

considered attractive and dances was the place to socialise.

Between dances the short *ugly tommies* you mentioned hovered around me and

pounced as soon as the music started and invariably their noses were stuck in my

breasts how (I hated that.)

... Can I have a dance?

I was so anti home school and was not quiet about how I felt about it, until I saw the difference between my nieces and nephews that were home schooled compared to my nieces and nephews that went to public school.

The children that were home schooled were so much more mature and advanced in their education, two of them received full scholarships in prestigious universities. Both in the advance sciences. I have two nephews in advanced classes in public school and they are nowhere close to were my home schooled nephews are in their education and knowledge.

I can only go on my personal experience but the children that are in public school don't spend enough of their time in actual learning, and the environment in schools today have way too many distractions. There is too much attention on what is socially desirable and what is PC.

It seems we usually only hear the positive stories of Home Schooling - - - and not the other side.

Most home schooling is for religious reasons. Those kids tend to be unprepared for the real world.

A blog that tells stories from both sides.

Not all children are home schooled for religious reasons and even for those that are, not all of them are nightmare stories either.

My post was in response to Sword0fJustice comment that the number of parents home schooling was on the rise. I shared how I was once against home schooling and I told of my personal experience with home schooling.

I have no personal experience with forced homeschooling for religious reasons. All the parents and students I was personally involved with did so voluntarily and with good results.

I am sure there are some people that did not have the same results, that does not change my belief that it is a good choice for a lot of people. Nothing is always good for everyone. People have to choose what is best for them.

I have friends on both sides of the aisle. I even have friends that have children in religious schools. The biggest complaint with those that have their children in religious schools is that there are more parents that have enrolled their children in this particular religious school, because the education is superior to the public schools, than those that enroll their children for religious reason, which has caused more secular ideologies to creep into some aspects of the school charter.

I have no fondness for religion but I have no hatred for it either, so I don't advocate for throwing the baby out with the bath water. All home schooling is not bad, all public schools are not bad, and all religious schools are not bad. Look for the good and choose what best fits you is the only advice I can give.

As always it is just my view point. To each his own.

I never said all.

I said MOST homeschooled children are because of religious reasons.

And -- the horrors of homeschooling gets swept under the rug.

What we usually hear about are the "Shining Stars" -- but, it's reversed for public schools.

We rarely hear about the "Shining Stars" of public schools.

That may be true were you are. It is not true were I live.

According to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) shown by the National Household Education Survey (NHES), the main motivation for home schooling is due to parents concern of the educational environment.

In the 2016 NHES, most common reason parents gave for homeschooling was a concern about the environment of other schools (80%). Almost two-thirds of homeschooling parents cited dissatisfaction with academic instruction at other schools (61%). Large numbers of parents also indicated that they were homeschooling to provide to provide moral (67%) or religious (51%) instruction or in order to provide a nontraditional approach to a child’s education (39%). Comparatively fewer parents cited physical or mental health problems (14%), special needs (20%), or temporary illness (4%).

There are a large number of people that may be motivated by religion, but it is not the largest reason, and not the only reason. The largest reason and the reason why the numbers are growing so rapidly, is due to the environment in public schools and lack of quality in academic instruction.
