Our family homeschools for many reasons with one of the chief reasons being the state of our public school system in America. And I am not saying it's the teachers. There are so many rules and standards to meet along with too large class sizes, not enough supplies, lack of extras like music that it effects our children's education.
Lately there have been a couple of articles put out that convince me even further that homeschooling (for now) is the right choice.
When an Adult Took Standardized Tests Forced on Kids :: Washington Post
A Silicon Valley School that Doesn't Compute :: New York Times
Also, if you haven't checked it out yet you must watch Waiting for "Superman". It is a fantastic documentary on the state of our educational system.
