19. I only hs one of my kids -
I graduated on from public school, and have one in 1st grade in a public charter magnet school.

I'm not anti-PS. I agree wholeheartedly that the PS system desperately needs improvement. It - as a whole - is damaged and getting worse by minute with NCLB. Society NEEDS an excellent education program.

Let's face it, PS does not work for every child in it's current format. For many, hs'ing offers a better environment for learning. For some, the schools available to them, are failing and they have no other options.

I just get really ticked when people say hs'ing is detrimental to a child's education and development when they know absolutely nothing about it and how it actually works. And I get REALLY upset when DU'ers lump all hs'ers in with the RW fundie nutjobs.

Thanks for not slamming us. :grouphug:
