National Math Competition Bans Homeschoolers

Concerned Women for America has confirmed that MathCounts, a national math competition for teams and individual students in grades 6-8, will not allow homeschoolers to form teams and compete in the 2010-2011 school year. The MathCounts board unanimously decided to exclude homeschoolers in response to a few situations in which "super teams" were formed by pulling certain gifted students from public schools and labeling them as homeschool teams. MathCounts has provided unique opportunities for gifted students to compete and to shine. The program is comparable to the National Spelling Bee. Winners on a national level are rewarded and meet the president at the White House. These examples of cheating obviously mar the competition, but homeschoolers as a whole should not be completely wiped from the competition. ...

CV and Cezar, you both made good points, home schoolers will have to go after what they can compete in. Now this is something of a state ran school, you might say a special one in Israel, bu it is something that Americans should start doing better in, Physics.

Jerusalem Post wrote:
Although you don’t necessarily need a scientific background, you do need a supportive family that will cheer you on, “because studying at the center, in addition to your high school studies, demands high motivation: You have to be willing to cut down on computer games and soccer.

“Last years winner, Hadas Tzabag, would travel from her home town of Netivot to the center at six in the evening, after going to school all day, and do her research at the center till 10 almost every night.”

from,
Physics phenomena in the Negev

Apparently Americans don't do well in this contest.

Not sure how this competition works, but just imagine if they said all public schools were banned if anyone was found cheating. Imagine the outcry because it really is a silly rationale.

Homeschoolers are predominantly Christians. State schools are predominantly anti-Christian. There is this hostile treatment of anything Christian in general. Under Obama, this kind of thing is supported by policy.

The reason...

State schools do not teach, they indoctrinate.

Homeschooled children are far more intelligent than any child that attends an unconstitutional state school.
