Well once again the Right Wing upsets the balance of Nature.


Recommended Posts

the reason that we have considered homeschooling is not religious. It has to do with current public schools being so data driven and so solely focused on the result of a test and not the process. Our son has some issues and so a bit of a square peg in a round hole. This idea that public schools are focused more on teaching kids about trans, gays, etc than actual reading, math, science is nothing but exaggeration. I have observed one of his classes... not a single mention of it in the classroom. Yes, there was one poster in the hallway.. one of many.

Its obvious that the public school systems have been failing for a long time now. Case in point; robo-bot claims to have 2 degrees. Its also obvious that you Libbies are focused on centralization of everything, including education. And while Libbies howl about homeschooling, I suspect their real gripe is with Charter schools, which outperform public schools by a wide margin.

Well lets get back to the basics.

1 - there's NO information i could find ANYWHERE that suggests the right is homeschooling any more than the left.  So right off the bat the whole premise is pretty questionable.

2 - I posted SEVERAL studies showing home schooled kids are better socialized, score better on tests, and get into college/university at higher rates and succeed more.  Soooo the whole thing is stupid - everyone should WANT to educate their kids at home, the kids get a better education.

This whole thing is just weird and a perfect example of how the left can twist many facts to come up with a bizarre new reason to 'hate' on the right without justification.

according to a certain poster.. every college/university outside of the state of Florida is a diploma mill. I wish that I would have known that before enduring grad school at University of Nevada. I could have quit studying for comprehensive exams to get into the Phd program. Oh wait... only 15% of applicants passed. So if it is a diploma mill where everyone gets a degree... why would 85% of applicants get told no..

A round peg in a square hole could be a sign of a higher IQ, certainly a sign of a creative nature.

Tests and hand-in assignments are really the only objective way to tabulate grades. I wouldn't trust a teacher who somehow handed out points for "participation" any more than I would a teacher who grades on the curve.

I tell the middle school students that they had better learn how to take tests, not just to get through school and graduate, but because the most important professions they may want to get into, (law, medicine, real estate, engineering, construction) require taking standardized state tests. There's nothing unnatural about being stressed about a test. That is perhaps the most human thing we can engage in, and it can be used as a tool to ace the test.

There ARE some public schools that are violated child molestation laws by inviting Drag Queers to come on campus and groom the children. I haven't seen the statistics per state so I won't say they are nationwide. (Of course, the State Of Florida has legislated some laws to protect public school kids from such abuse.)

Its a matter of teaching to the test. When the teachers are mandated to gear their entire curriculum and agenda to the questions on a specific standardized test.. that comes at the detriment of teaching process. How you get to the answer is just as important as the answer itself. 

I am the second in charge at an office and it drives me nuts that we get smart folks in who are so programmed to know answers that they are clueless when you throw even the slightest curve ball. If they knew process.. the curveballs would not be so daunting.

I don't. Was just wondering when the education system belched you forward. 

My education is CONTINUOUS because college taught me how to educate MYSELF by giving me the basics.

The only one who is belching here is YOU, BEERMAN.

Or it is YOUR self-taught education which FAILED YOU and MADE YOU unjustifiably ARROGANT.

AKA, you don't know what YOU DON'T KNOW.

Maybe you should see a DOCTOR unless you've been flying through the transmitter beams of geo-stationary satellite comm links. LMAO

BTW, I didn't work on the RF, I worked on the DIGITAL part of the data links. Do you even know what that means?

I knew a group of parents of children with mild/moderate learning disabilities. They worked together to home school their children. I think that’s a far better model than one parent pretending to be able to take their kids through middle and high school level math/science/English/etc.  Very few people can master all of that material.  
 

In any event, sometimes home schooling is not a religious/political decision, but a practical need, and I respect that very much.

The idea that anyone/parent can cover today's needed curriculum from elementary to middle school all the way thru highschool is unrealistic. The parent would need to be versed in ever facet of education for every single yr and for highschool courses in math alone just isn't feasible. So for those here who claim that somehow a homeschool education compares to an actual public school education is just kidding themselves.

And in reality most parents I see who want to educate their young are the least capable.

After all if you where able to do that then you'd be an actual educator making 120k a year with an ass kicking retirement and guaranteed healthcare for life.

That was not a binary answer. try upgrading your Boolean algebra

The only anti-jamming that I will do here is to stand up to communists and Chuds, one can do the same both.

Don't think I forgot when you linked one of your sources, you provided a Marxist source. So, where that leaves, Uncle Sugar man? 

So what if the FREE book was hosted for distribution on a "Marxist" website? How about you read it and see if it contains Marxist ideas?

It's about what the Jews did to Palestinians in 1948 to create Israel. Marx died in 1883, so he had nothing to do with the  Zionism that created Israel. Maybe he was AN inspiration for that theft of land. You tell me.

I know of many home schoolers. Some lived in remote places where there was no public school. All the ones I knew moved to town, or moved the kid to a grandparent in town around Grade7 or 8 so the kid could learn some social skills. The parents would never admit it in public, but they knew they weren't capable of teaching beyond Elementary levels.

Of the home schoolers I know who lived where public schools were available, they taught their kids their own beliefs rather than facts. The kids severely lacked skills on how to deal with or accept others, carried their parents' prejudices, had only read what their parents 'allowed' them to read and if not for gov't regulated curriculum to learn math etc. would be challenged in that area too.

I heard the girls in my office talking about the daughter of a woman I knew... they were a couple Grade 12s themselves. Too much perfume, crappy makeup, wrong clothes, etc etc.
This girl was much smarter than either of her parents, but had been kept out of public schools her whole life and had few friends. So I told the kids she was home schooled by Jesus Freaks and honestly didn't even know such things, but was a good kid and they'd actually like her. They made that effort. And they ended up friends.

Several years later I met one of the girls at a gathering and she told me of things that you simply would not believe that poor kid wasn't taught.

In NY parents who wish to home school their children must provide written notice of intent to the school district superintendent. The school district must then respond to the family and provide a copy of the home instruction regulations as well as an individualized home instruction plan (IHIP) form to complete. 

From my experience most parents who want to homeschool for religious reasons or distrust of the public education system just can't cut the mustard and actually hurt their children in the process. Many give up and put their child back into the system only to be one or two grades behind kids their age.

To sum this subject up the very right wing families who believe anyone should be able to buy an AR-15 then out of fear that their kid could be slaughtered in a mass shooting pull their children out of schools (public or charter) is irony at an off the charts level.

Nonsense. You just have to be able to explain the course material that is sent to you. You make it sound like they educate the child with absolutely no materials or support documentation at all. That is not the case. They have access to the same stuff that a teacher would. And the results are obvious. These kids are doing better than kids in regular school.

 

If you have to lie to make a point, you don't have a very good point.

That is borderline Hysteria. Why are you so afraid of the right? I take it you believe that Trump is going to win again and it's driving you into a state of frenzy. There's no other explanation for your absolutely Unhinged behavior

Your delirious if you think you can hand a kid a bunch of books and tell them "just do this" without the support of someone "A Teacher" to answer questions and guide them.

You're delirious if you think parents can t be teachers.

And the results show - as i've posted there are many studies out there and the vast majority show homeschooled kids do better academically, socially and in post secondary. So whatever your theories are the reality is proving you wrong.
