Common Core anger triggers homeschooling surge in North Carolina
North Carolina officials say there has been a huge increase over the past two years in the number of Tar Heel families who have pulled their kids out of public schools and begun educating them at home.

The number of homeschools has jumped 27 percent since the 2011-12 school year, reports.

I will put up just one more word in my defense, I have often pointed out the video, (NET: Home School Nebraska). I think it will show that many homeschoolers in Nebraska have good relations with the public school system. If Many started spouting nonsense from the John Birch Society, that good relationship would end. homeschooling should have nothing to do with politics other than protecting the right to do homeschooling. For homeschoolers, Christian ones, I, especially, again will point out: The Christian Right Movement is a disaster for the mission of Christians! ' "The Reconstructionist movement and its allies and offshoots, by substituting political and cultural action for the proclamation of the Gospel, by substituting eschatology for soteriology, and by mangling the Gospel itself, have become tools of Romanist political action" (3/02, The Trinity Review).' excerpt from, (Notes on Reconstructionism).

Thomas, I would think you would be hard put to find any messages I left in which I criticized homeschooling! if your children are prepared for the work they want to do or the school they want to go to, excellent. Did you read the article on the brainy bunch for instance? I would suggest that you look at my last message again.

I do attact people who think that public schools are not necessary. I have used the article, (The Wingnut War On Common Core Is A Plot To Destroy Public Schools). on several, I have off on put up articles supporting homeschooling.

I would put my homeschooled children up against any of your government schooled lemmings any day Jimbo. Then perhaps you would see what ignorant children your beloved government is churning out. You really should be quite about things you don't understand, but in typical left wing form you seek to destroy that you don't understand.moron

After reading the other story about how many young mothers are cohabiting rather than marrying, it occurred to me that there might be a connection with the factors involving home schooling. We might assume that these young mothers have less income than married young mothers, and that would also mean there is less chance of them home schooling--they need to go to work to pay the bills and the govt schools are free, and now the govt schools even promote 'magnet schools' in special interests like math, science, or art.
No frustration here, but simply observing the news as it rolls in every day.
Does anyone remember the Scientific Reading Associates materials in elementary school? I used them and enjoyed their challenge. I wonder if they were part of a national "Common Core" program.

Yes, Mike of N.Y., businesses and colleges are motivated, they're tired of the waste of human talent. Now I hope I have pointed out that homeschooling is especially great for two very different groups, in human eyes anyway, the mentally gifted and the mentally challenged. Example of the first would be (Meet the 'Brainy Bunch,' family with 7 kids in college by age 12) and the latter group one may lump in people that aren't stupid but still can't function that well in a public school environment, e.g., Education of Helen Keller). Anyway, homeschooled or not unless these children are just going to have the life of handymen or Amish farmers, they will need to know most of the material that children that went to CC did, businesses and colleges aren't going to put up with a bunch of ignoramuses Understanding "Common Core": Standards and Backlash[/UR

Tara Diddle, do you think people are homeschooling because they are part of this "Christian 10%"? that certainly seems to be a negative attitude towards those who see communism thrust on the next generation. maybe they just see the writing on the wall? yes, many are having to work many jobs, many are out of work and can't get work so they homeschool, this is the new reality for most, I'm not sure who your frustration is vented out on.

Common Core is the latest 'best thing' in public education. What were the previous ones? Don't you think there were other ones? "New Math" is one that comes to mind.

It was interesting to read the comments added to the article linked here, especially one from a college professor who gave many reasons to do home schooling.

I think most people will not do home schooling since they depend on two incomes to pay high debt load from college, car loans, medical bills, etc.

So, once again, the conservative right can stand in their corner with their ten percent and rant about another issue that few people care about! They should care! Yes, I agree. But they don't for economic reasons mentioned above.
Now if we could combine home schooling and changing child-labor laws, we could see more people doing it.

Promoters of Common Core are motivated indeed.
