Not only do a long list of studies show that mom and dad can teach their own children as effectively as any "certified" teacher, there are indications that for some subjects, those "qualified" instructors actually deliver a negative impact to the performance of their students, according to a new assessment assembled by the Home School Legal Defense Association.
The organization periodically assembles information for its constituency, the hundreds of thousands of families across the United States that teach their own children at home.
This new report by Chris Klicka, senior counsel for the HSLDA, is titled, "The Myth of Teacher Qualifications."...
Homeschooling in the UK is under threat from bureaucrats and politicians. Quote...
"LONDON, June 11, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) â Under newly announced Labour government rules, local council authorities are authorized to enter private homes to interview children, without parents present, on their safety and âquality of education.â The new regulations have raised fears among Britainâs homeschooling community of a government attack on the rights of parents to educate their children at home. Families will be forced to register with authorities and could face criminal penalties if they are deemed to be inadequately educating their children"
I can see these bureaucrats forcing homosexual lifestyle and evolution onto unsuspecting Christian parents!!!
Interesting. Both my mom and my dad were teachers, but they were too busy teaching other people's kids to teach me in the same formal manner. I'm sure they could've done at least as well as the public school system I was trained in, and the extra attention available for more difficult subjects would've been very welcome indeed.
