“Go to every PTA meeting you can. Be a voice and run for PTA and the school board if you can. Meet with your children’s teachers to find out what is being taught in their classes. Sadly, we may have to supplement at home. I think this is one reason why I am hearing more and more secular parents opting to home school rather than send their kids to public or private schools. Education has gotten so bad, you can no longer trust that a school will give your child a proper education.
I am personally against homeschooling. I think it lacks the social necessity of school, and as smart as we parents think we are, many of us do lack the formal education to teach all subjects. I may be able to handle history and science, but I certainly don’t want my own child learning math from me. I think the solution is to help everyone. Homeschooling may seem right for your child, but it leaves thousands behind in need of help. The last thing we should be doing is giving up on the system. We should be fixing it.”
