Most teachers are not qualified to be teachers. Sure they went to school to become a teacher but that does not mean a thing.

Exactly, send your kid to a public school so he can turn into those little monsters who were bullying their bus monitor....

The only caveat I would put forth is that home school kids need to be immersed with others their age. I can't tell you how many home schooled kids I have met with poor social skills.

Those pathetic parents of whom you speak got that way by being public schooled. Now the situation is self repeating. They are no longer capable of teaching their own kids. Those who are capable could not care less to do so because they are selfish, self absorbed and too materialistic. Public schooling is a relatively new weapon in the war against the family. The purpose it to get kids away from mom and dad and fill them with ideals (or the lack thereof) that are of use to the state. To destroy the family. To demoralize individuals. It is done and it is too late to stop the flood.

But it saddens me that so many people automatically assume that homeschooling ruins a childs social skills.
Bet it didn't take you four years to prepare for and pass that GED either, did it?
