The system tells you what is best for your child and if you disagree then you are obviously an unfit parent.
I shiver when I think of how the further generations will rate us. I know we have failed, I am just terrified of what our failures are going to look like for further generations.

We also rarely hear about the dark side of baby bunnies, Bob Ross, clean drinking water, breasts, Tom Hanks, Fred Rogers, good hygiene practices, being polite, people who pick up after their pet, orgasms, and, of course, the smell of cookies baking... wonder why that is?

USA Public schools are awful. Check the statistics. Compare us to other countries. You'll see it's awful. I have kids on elementary school. Common Core was hilariously terrible. Thank God my state ditched it. I can't wait to see what middle and high school of public education have in store instead of making me write me an essay. I'm still debating to put my kids in private school after elementary so they have a chance in this world.
Choosing a private school for your children is a good choice, while in public schools sector still much work needs to be done in order to improve it. Moreover in private schools teachers are motivated to work harder, therefore children will get more knowledge and skills crucial for survival.

The problem with home schooling is that if the parent teaching the kid is an idiot, more than likely, the kid will end up being one also.
