Here is a nice video interlude showing some anti-socialized homeschoolers.
 
 
 


That video was so retarded it made me believe all home school stereotypes.
Que pasa?

The homeschool vs public school debate is a great one.

Like it or not, if you're in a public school, you're being guided by an agenda. By a political agenda set forth by your state's government, that is either dictated by standardized tests or some other means of assessment, no matter how sneaky. If the school does poorly this year, prepare for it to be completely different next year.

Homeschooling has the potential to provide a person with a more focused education, without the undeniable benefits of social interaction no matter how 'forced' it is. Neither system is perfect. Neither system is completely awful, and to generalize about either one makes you a moron.

Denying that homeschooling eliminates many negative impacts on a child, both educational and social makes you almost helmet and drool cup material.

Likewise if you're denying that homeschooling has the potential to curtail  certain social interactions which can be key to successful social growth.

Besides that- Every instance of homeschooling I know goes through the local public school anyway, so its the same damn curriculum anyway.

100% agree up until that last line - there are many, many other options besides going through local public school, its probably popular to do that around where you are, but in my area i think i've met one or two people who do it that way as opposed to 100+ who don't.

probably also has to do with where i've met most of the homeschoolers i know from - mostly through church/other christian related activities, almost all of which use chistian oriented curriculums (saxon and abeca being the biggest)

That's why I threw in the qualifier "That I know"....I don't pretend to know everything about homeschooling, so I won't say that what the system I'm familiar with is the way its done everywhere.

I've got a friend of mine whom I'm in the FD with whose mother home schooled all of her kids, and they all managed to turn out alright. There isnt any one of them that lacks the social graces that one would pick up in a public school. (Except for the one that went to jail for a while, but to every rule...there's an exceptionTongue)

When the individual can not sell him/herself sue the school
http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local-beat/College-Grad-Cant-Find-Job-Wants--Back-52304162.html


ME: TROOP......MAYBE SOME INTRENSIC SKILLS SUCH AS...............SELF CONFIDENSE...........PRIOR PROPER PREPARATION OF RESUME...........AND POSSIBLY THE ABILITY TO SELL YOURSELF TO THE EMPLOYER WOULD HELP....................BLAMING SOMEONE ELSE FOR YOUR FAILINGS IS A PITIFULL EXCUSE....................DO YOU UNDERSTAND....TROOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pitiful college graduate: YES, DRILL SERGEANT

Worked for a couple of generations, but today's youth are too pampered and expect to mirical themselves into positions they are not prepared for IN THE WORK FORCE. I did not have a degree entering the civilian workforce, but was armed with exceptional levels of self confidense, motivation, and could con the panties off a female statue, and I got jobs where the application required a college degree, but once I got into that interview I was usually put right on top of the second interview/hire pile....explain that tidbit. I am still getting job offers from transportation companies I worked for, they need expierience, confidense, and initiative....something Joe/Jane college grad lacks.

WHEN YOU EXPECT TO BE THE BEST AND YOU ARE ONLY ARMED LIKE THE REST....BE PREPARED FOR LIFES BIG DISAPPOINTMENTS......LEAD THE WAY, OR GET OUT OF MY WAY.........FOR RANGERS LEAD THE WAY!!! HOOOORAHHHH

One moron who sues the college because she cant get a job is not indicative of an entire generation.

i want to know what she got her degree in... when I transferred schools I was a biomedical sciences major, and my advisor straight up asked me if i wanted a job when I got out of school.  I obviously ended up switching.  She probably got a useless degree.
