] Many agree- school sucks.
So, what do you guys think about home schooling... When I think of it, I think of reclusive people like the family in the Virgin Suicides and I think of slightly crazy fundamentalists of various variety. It seems like its something that would be impossible to do on two incomes, and it seems like its becoming more and more difficult for people to live the American Dream on one income, particularly in places like California or New York. Additionally, I find it hard to imagine teaching advanced subjects effectively. Do I recall all the details of high school level chemistry? I can do calculus, but can I teach it? Can most "home school" parents do calculus? Can I provide social outlets for my kids that are better then the admittedly bad one in public schools?
Just not something I've ever taken seriously. I was somewhat surprised by the tone taken by this site. Seemed more intelligent and less ideological then I expected.
What do you think?
