  •  Getting homeschooling wrong (7+ / 0-)

    I've posted about this before and I'll continue posting about it whenever I need to. Don't paint homeschooling with the broad, anti-science, fundy based humanities brush as I see here.

    My daughter homeschools her three kids and she laughs as hard at the fundies as I do. No 3 (or 5 or 8) thousand year old earth for her and my grandkids. She separates the dinosaurs from the hominids and none of them believe Jesus rode them. She has surrounded herself with like minded secular homeschoolers in every community (and state) in which she's lived (three, so far—soon to be four) and her influence has been felt in each place.

    They are very aware of the image homeschooling in general and non-secular homeschooling in particular presents  and have their own cogent discussion at the ready whenever challenged. I will put her up against anyone, anywhere who thinks homeschooling is wholly an arm of the fundies.

    I would appreciate it if everyone would help spread the word that they're not all like that.
