        I am very familiar w/ this story (my wife works at a hybrid home school). No matter what your feelings on home school (and I am not a fan - at least where my own kids were concerned ), it should scare the hell out of you. There are activists here who feel govt.s in the US should take the same approach Germany did. Fortunately while vocal, they are fairly small; they do however seem to be getting more support from the NEA (I know many of you will find that shocking). Don’t think this kind thing can’t happen here. I’d love for some our liberal chatterers to weigh in w/ their thoughts on home schooling.

          I am all for home schooling. I think everyone should put a wall around their children and teach then using an online biblical processed curriculum. Talk radio has pointed out the evilness and homosexual driven agenda of the public schools and these parents have swallowed it hook line and crank bait. But honestly, I think it works for some families and at this rate it will be the norm in 40 yrs. Everyone will still have a home school to keep up with their progress but one teacher will do it live online for each subject, Kids will walk to a park or somewhere else for phys, (PE) activity. To an auditorium somehwere for music and band.

            Coach... "public education" is stuck in an assembly line, step-by-step, mentality. It was designed that way, under a German model, to produce good, capable workers for the economy of the time, and we are so locked into that vs what is required today, it's not even funny. You wanna "fix" it? Me too. We return to a progress based system that is not based on age or grade and where a teacher becomes a facilitator connecting a kid to the appropriate level of instruction. But we won't do that... we'll stick with "fixing the system", which as we can see in the Tucker Carlson thread and the thread on teachers quitting/shortage, ain't gonna happen.

              Change. It’s difficult. Generally has to be forced.

                  We used to do that at my school before the politicians realized that 1. they could control it all and 2. there was $$$ in there. We had a reading curriculum for the whole school and after your assessment you went to the level you belonged in. So we had 2nd graders moved up with fourtha and 3rd graders moved down with 1st. I wrote an article for the Gville Sun about it in a guest column and they printed it. Well, it had a lot more than that but they still ran it with my picture even.

                    Coach, is your first consideration (thought) when solving a problem is to look towards govt as the answer?

                    My first thought in terms of schooling the last few decades is how will they now fck it up..........they are so adept at it now I see little hope. The gutless Fla Supreme Crt. just agreed with the politicians that the State constitution means nothing in regard to Public D.

                      So is govt’s ineptness limited to education? If so you’d think there’d be a way to remedy the fault?

                      Actually the govt does do some things fairly well.

                        I’ll just leave this right here, and he talks about all education, not just college. Son #2 sent this too me today, and here’s the kicker: the book he mentions as crap, “Siddartha”, is required reading in the one class EVERY undergrad at UF mandatorily takes: One UF, and is utter lefty indoctrination... it’s unbelievably bad.

                          At least the little homeschooled Jesus freaks can read, write, and add.
