Learning how to mate like rabbits, "go with the flow"... to give attention to all the "fun" at the expense of learning the valuable and necessary tools needed to be a successful and independent adult, only add to the great loss in public education today. Education is not supposed to be just a big social gathering, it is supposed to teach you the basic tools you will need as an adult to be able to survive and thrive without being dependent on others.Your post shows the values kids learn in public school today.....are not really any values at all but hinders the needed transition from childhood to adulthood.

You are taught to conform and be the same, you are taught that those who do not conform are worthless and are deserving to be treated less than human....so you are taught to imprison your own mind by following the crowd rather than thinking independently....not very smart. Nothing good comes from these things.

The biggest complaint of employers today is the lack of skills and proper attitude/ethics. Employers don't need anymore slackers. At least a parent knows it is most important to prepare their child with the tools that are essential for their child to succeed and survive in the adult world and will aim to teach their child those skills.

Don't listen to the nay sayers! Your kids social skills will improve, they will not be so easily lead down any and every immoral path that today's schools seem to push, if that's how you guide them. They are your kids; you guide them, not government schools incorporated. If you are worried about the social skills argument, there are almost always other local homeschoolers in your area who are willing to meet up for socializing.

Also, the best way to keep your children out of something you do not want them to be a part of is to NOT ENROLL them to begin with, so if they were already in school you will have a harder time. Do not let anybody scare you into to do anything, the best thing you can do is be educated on the coming opposition before faced with it, make a decision before it comes and have a decision made.

I will say that many homeschooling families do fall into the trap of totally cutting the kids off from all the negatives of the world, which can lead the kids to not being ready for the real world. My belief is to be honest with them and show them the real world, that way when it comes at them they have what you taught them and are ready to deal with anything.

Good for you.
