... in the United States at least, the point of home schooling is indocrination.
The people arguing that public education is indoctrinating and hurting kids and that homeschooling is the best way to teach kids, are the same people arguing that the moon is man made and that humans lived with dinosaurs.
Brilliant anti-Common Core Speech by Dr. Duke Pesta
Additionally, in the United States at least, the point of home schooling is indoctrination.
I can’t really remember the last time I just went outside and ran around
We do whatever it takes to get an A
When I had kids, I didn’t think that the only time I’d see them was for 20 minutes at dinner
These kids are so overscheduled and tired … I’m afraid that our children are going to sue us for stealing their childhoods
We want the best for them [so] we put pressure on them to be what we want them to be
[All of this pressure] ends up turning kids into little professionals
I figured out that not eating gave me more energy … but it still wasn’t enough to get everything done
My school principal told me [when I tried to return from a treatment facility for anorexia and anxiety] that she didn’t want the teachers to have to worry about me – I was too much of a distraction for them [and other students]
We lose boys because they tune out and we lose girls to depression
The countries that outperform us on international tests actually give less homework than we do in the United States
At what point did it become okay for schools to dictate how we spend our lives after the bell rings? [regarding homework]
Parents need to educate themselves that homework isn’t going to make their students any smarter
When American kids encounter questions [on international assessments that don’t look like what they’re used to from their rote practice], they fall apart
These tests that they do so horrible on – they don’t test my kids on the curriculum, they test them on their culture and their culture isn’t represented on the tests
I tell my [urban] students that learning is power – to do whatever you want to do in life, you have to be a learner and you have to care – that is not what the district wants from me as a teacher
If we forget this [question] or do a different one, then we’re going to get in trouble and we’ll lose 5 minutes of recess [4th grader]
Your 6–month-old is supposed to be sucking on his toes and thumbs, not doing flashcards
[Students say] ‘The teacher doesn’t care – it’s just busy work – why CAN’T I just copy my homework?’
The point of education is to learn, not memorize
It’s impossible to cover all of the material for the AP course in one year. Literally impossible.
After my daughter passed her AP French exam, she said, “I never have to speak French again.”
So much of [kids’] time is structured. The only unstructured time they seem to have is the time they spend on the computer.
What’s happening these days is that kids aren’t getting a chance to find out what they love to do.
They’re 4 or 8 [years old] and they’re resume-building
Parents say ‘My child is a good kid.’ No, they were a good performer. You never found out if they were a good kid. You just know they’re a good student, not a good solid kid.
I stopped trying because if you don’t try, you can’t fail.
I think that success in America is measured by how much money you make, not how happy you are in your life
The environment and culture are so competitive that kids don’t feel like they can ever let people see their true selves
If you’ve always had As, there’s only one way to go and that’s down, so that B feels like a failure
We need to redefine success for kids … We have to get off this treadmill together. [We have to discuss] what does it take to create a happy, motivated, creative human being?

Fluoride poisens you.

aspartame makes you sick or kills you.
there are 13 satanic families doing all this
we are ruled from outside this dimension
we are not Beppy or John but infinite consciousness having an experience.
Christian-based materials dominate a growing home-school education market that encompasses more than 1.5 million students in the U.S. And for most home-school parents, a Bible-based version of the Earth's creation is exactly what they want. Federal statistics from 2007 show 83% of home-schooling parents want to give their children "religious or moral instruction."
"The majority of home-schoolers self-identify as evangelical Christians," said Ian Slatter, a spokesman for the Home School Legal Defense Association. "Most home-schoolers will definitely have a sort of creationist component to their home-school program."
Those who don't, however, often feel isolated and frustrated from trying to find a textbook that fits their beliefs.
Two of the best-selling biology textbooks stack the deck against evolution, said some science educators who reviewed sections of the books at the request of The Associated Press.
"I feel fairly strongly about this. These books are promulgating lies to kids," said Jerry Coyne, an ecology and evolution professor at the University of Chicago.
