We're looking at a school in our area that is a hybrid. The kids spend three days in the classroom and the other two at home with mom or dad drilling and working over their classroom work. It's organized around the classical education curriculum ideas, and more than anything I really want to make sure our son gets that formal logic class in his education.
But I figure if we like what we see from it, we'll have no excuse to not know what he's learning in the classroom out of that setup.
How's this for creepy? Maybe Common Core is only supposed to be about imposing common standards on everyone, but way too many companies are taking advantage of it to push some questionable agendas in their curriculum planning. Take this high school government assignment from an Illinois high school. It sends home a survey asking parents to self-identify their beliefs on highly charged political issues with a poorly-written survey.

True. But for households that really believed that this wouldnt arise as an issue in the first place since you wouldnt be sending your kid to government school.
Going to a government school and complaining about the indoctrination is like going to Burger King and bitching about the lack of pizza.
