I was trying to get that across, but it's hard to do in 10 talking points.

Thanks for adding it in though.

Home schooling. IMO says a lot about someone and their beliefs.

Not even remotely. You did pique my curiosity though on how exactly you can justify a blanket statement like that without coming off sounding like a jerk.

I know a fair amount of people that home school their children and they tend to be...... "different". Not necessarily in a good way. It would further explain some of his more extreme viewpoints.

I know a fair amount of people who home school because they don't care for the public school system. It doesn't make them much 'different' to me.

It's got its obvious drawbacks, but to blanket the entire system with negativity sort of smacks of arrogance.

The vast majority of people that I encounter that home school their kids do it for religious purposes and tend to be a bit on the fringe. Perhaps your experience has been different, but citing his recent posts and behaviour, I would say it supports my general perception. I am not saying all people that home school their kids are kooks, but it does not surprise me that he does. If you took it as a negative attack on the system, you mistook it.

And I am not arrogant, just aloof.

Although oldpbnoob's assessment doesn't hold true for everyone, as it is a generalization, I've found that what he is saying is often correct.

fixed that for you...

Yeah, I get that a lot. But, like I stated in a different thread. I really don't care what others think of me. I am only trying to do the best I can for my family, and do the right thing in the eyes of my Lord.

I don't send my kids to "public" school, because I can do a better job, faster, for less money, and give them a much better education. Plus it allows me to travel whenever I want. I can "school" them anywhere.

My kids will get a much better education, without all of the indoctrination, that goes on in "public" school. I'm paying to have them take the "public" school tests in a couple of months. You want me to post their scores compared to the mean average of the students in my area? I am positive they will be WAY higher than their public educated peers.

http://www.hslda.org/docs/nche/000010/200410250.asp

And my favorite thing is the whole "socialism" argument. My kids have tons of friends. And our house is the one where they all want to come to play. As I have spent my time and effort establishing a place where they can have fun, without all of the "secular" influences that come from public education. My kids can carry on a conversation with anyone, not just kids their own age... They have more respect for others than most of the people who post on this board, and would never use profanity, or dress immodestly.

I also don't have to worry about school shootings, or drugs, or alcohol, or cussing, or rude behavior, or lack of respect, or bad grades, or poor grammar, or lazy teachers, or accidents on the way to and from school, or negative peer influence. And I can instead focus on teaching them about life, giving them a well rounded education, and letting them grow in the things that are important to them. Like riding horses, art, reading, and this weird thing called "playing"...

Yeah, I'm "different"...

 

They tremble at my name...

So instead of "indoctrinating" them with public education, they get indoctrinated with your own personal beliefs. Hrm.

And yes. I would rather educate my kids than let someone else do it. Unlike public "liberal" education. I actually show them both sides of issues, and the reasons I am for or against them, then let them choose.

Actually, I've found that a liberal education, coupled with a conservative upbringing enabled me to look at the heads and the tails of the same coin. Exposure to liberalism isn't a bad thing.

It helps to know your enemy.

I'm almost convinced you're a troll now. Do you teach your kids from convservapedia too?

I guess free thinking is too much for your kids to handle anyway. You know, why let them come to their own conclusions, when you already made up their minds for them?
