I am a father, who withdrew all three of my children do to a ps
teacher indicating that my daughter was too slow to learn. This is
not what you tell a father who sees his daughter as the apple of
his eye. It took a Christian private school and a m2m program
(majority to minority) school teacher to realize that my daughter
had a lot of potential, providing these teachers had something
that you lack...motivation, creativeness, and drive. Since then
she's been tested for tag. Now keep in mind, I don't knock all ps
teachers because my mom retired as one, but she didn't lack in the
area of motivating the students. She dared them to dream.
My son's fifth grade ps teacher was passing him with A's and B's
when he was misspelling words in just about everything. We were
told that the Board of Edu. instructed that these kids had to be
passed. I don't think so! Then we were discouraged from the idea of
keeping him back due to him not learning. Now if my son gets up
and walks around the class room for no reason, then he is bored.
Where's the challenge to the kids who tends to excel quicker than
Now, my main reason for homeschooling my children is simple...
"Teach a child a way that they should go and they will not
depart from it..." (The Book of Proverbs). I choose the
principles of the bible which the government only chooses to
acknowledge only fall short in their abilities. We teach our
children to acknowledge the Lord Jesus Christ in everything and
give thanks. I choose these principles to homeschool over the fact
what ps teaches them. I think abstinence from sex until marriage
is better than saying just practice safe sex for an 11 year old,
"What do you think?"
Don't take it personal unsympathetic, but we just love our
children and the security of who they will become better than the
complaining that you are doing. I'd like to know that my children
know how to fish instead of being lazy and looking for a hand out.
Even a worker ant puts back for a rainy day.
I praise God for giving us an opportunity to homeschool than
some places, some people have no choice but to keep their child in
ps but we have the choice to homeschool ours.
