PumpkinCake: My husband's father's wife came to our house for Christmas, as she generally has been doing for a couple years now. She's a public school counselor for troubled high schools and spends weekends in Juvie with the kids, so she sees a bunch of stuff.Now, this last Christmas she and her husband went on this half hour long rant about how every homeschool kid they have ever seen has been behind in academics and socially retarded. Just on and on (I am in charge of schooling our kids, and I can go into great detail about which curriculums we use, which charter schools we have been a part of, and which social activities we participate in. I have a BA and have published a book, and am working on a couple more, as has my husband. We're not messing around). I don't really care what these two think: they have their lives, and we see them on birthdays sometimes (we never invited them to Christmas, they just told us they were coming one year).And then I see stories like this, and I wonder what on earth she was smoking. Sure, there are some homeschoolers who go off into religious bunny trails, but most of the families I know still have to take the STAR tests and we're all kickin ass and taking names.Just venting. Hate that woman./seriously...in *my house* with *my family* at *Christmas*

AgentBang: This is one of the primary reasons why I doubt we'll continue to raise our child here once she starts going to school. Unless I hit it big and can afford a public school.NYC schools, damn you scary.
Giltric: I guess their teachers weren't getting paid enough.right guys?
