Qellaqan: j0ndas: Homeschoolers probably are a bit "weird", if by weird you mean educated, not caught up in fashion and music, interested in learning things totally not on the core curriculum, etc. My siblings have done just fine in swim team, Civil Air Patrol, tae kwon do, Boy Scouts, etc., and then later in a large variety of campus clubs (several have led said clubs) and in the business world. However, relating to most public-schooled teens is difficult, because most public-schooled teens are shallow and two grades behind homeschoolers of the same age. That's why homeschoolers tend to get along better with adults and less with most children - they have more in common with adults.

By the way, funny fact - that button mentioned in the article "Home's cool... Homeschool!" was probably sold by me personally at one of the conventions we went to back then. I and/or my brother usually manned our booth, and we'd sell about $100 of buttons on the side. Man, the button-making device gave us blisters, though.

I hope this is a clever troll because you come off as rather unpleasant.

I think homeschooling is great. The more people who are home-schooled, the less competition there will be for the few STEM jobs that haven't been off-shored or displaced by H-1Bs.

It will without fail show up in every thread mentioning home schooling until the end days. And as it gets more funny with each posting it will begin approaching a critical mass of mirth.

orclover: This IS a bookmark first of all.  My wife, myself and my mother all homeschool my youngest son (9) and have done so for almost a year now.  The reasons we do so and what led us to such a hard decision would take a 20 page article to explain.  To sum up, fark public school system and the power abusing farks they harbor. Not to mention the psychotic little shiats who run rampant through the halls physically abusing anybody they wish.   Getting him out of that meat grinder probably saved his life or at least his future sanity.

Too farking much to say on the subject.  Would need hours and a few dozen drinks to get it all out.  Just.  fark that god damn public school system and those farking teachers and that god damn principal and those psychotic farking kids.

Qellaqan: It's purely theoretical at this point, but I'm intrigued by the idea of home schooling my kids. All school taught me was how to look busy and make up fun things (an admittedly useful skill), but damn elementary school was light on learning. All I learned socially was how to be so weird that I was no longer appealing to pick on.


There's no reason you can't educate your kids and send them to public school. I was always ahead of my class in elementary school so I often read books my parents gave me during classes. There are plenty of resources out there for parents who want to do things on their own that are both educational and fun for kids.

Now look at me. I'm posting on Fark and doing a pretty good job of getting over my hangover.

Ah yes, homeschooling.  One of the suppliers of "Weird kids who often have massive gaps in their history and social science educations, leading them to vote for regressive policies."  At least in the modern era there is hope the kids will make it onto the internet one day and educate themselves.

The big issue with home schooling is that the kids who excel are the kids who have intelligent parents to serve as teachers and are motivated or able to be motivated by their parents.  My kids would come home from public school with their homework already done which left us with plenty of time in the evenings and weekends for side projects.  So the kids get all the benefits of socialization and advanced classes.  Go to school, learn to function in a formal academic environment (of sorts), and then pursue specific interests at home.  Public school is free, so you might as well use it.  You don't need someone that skilled to teach basic math, so just outsource that kind of education to school and free up both parents to work.  The second income is going to help you in terms of access to summer programs, colleges, more than picking up calculus a year early.

RickN99: Mock26: What is sad/scary about home schooling is that (from what I have read) most home school programs that you can use are faith-based.  That is all great and good if you want to teach creationism and all that, but not good if you want to teach real science.

Most "homeschool programs" that you see advertised are religious-based because there is little need for special secular homeschool programs.  Those programs are already available from the same textbook publishers that supply the school systems.

I homeschooled one of my kids from 6th-12th grades.  I used the same textbooks that the school used - from Prentiss-Hall and McGraw-Hill.  I simply registered with those companies as a homeschool teacher and I got to buy all the books I needed.

So there is ZERO problem with teaching real versus creationist science.  You only teach religious-based topics if you want to; you never have to.


I was not aware that the textbook publishers had programs.  Thank you for clearing that up for me.  Of course, the only homeschooling I have done only involved things like, Sit, Shake, and Play Dead.
