Educational decline: Homeschooling surges as parents seek safer option for children
After a gunman opened fire on students in Parkland, Florida, the phones started ringing at the Texas Home School Coalition, and they havenâ€™t stopped yet.
The Lubbock-based organization has been swamped with inquiries for months from parents seeking safer options for their kids in the aftermath of this yearâ€™s deadly school massacres, first in Parkland and then in Santa Fe, Texas.
â€śWhen the Parkland shooting happened, our phone calls and emails exploded,â€ť said coalition president Tim Lambert. â€śIn the last couple of months, our numbers have doubled. Weâ€™re dealing with probably between 1,200 and 1,400 calls and emails per month, and prior to that it was 600 to 700.â€ť...
can't blame them a bit. an increase would be a great thing. so much to learn, that a family can grow in the admonition of the Lord together and can build up other families in the faith as a living witness. still many can't for extenuating circumstances, less regulations gives opportunity for Christian families to help one another out. course don't let that get out, might cause a snowflake meltdown.

When I get married and have children the children will be homeschooled. The school year will begin the day after Labor Day and end on 1 March. After all homeschooling means the parents can choose how long their homeschool year will be and how long the homeschool week will be. The school week will only be a four day week, Monday through Thursday. What month do you start the homeschool year? What month do you end the homeschool year?
Very thankful Texas has an option to homeschool without registration. The pro government school advocates have absolutely no counter debate against homeschooling. Their show a crazy family once and a while â€ś the flying lesbians â€ś of the west coast or the Vegas family looking like Napoleon Dynamite but these are not the rule. School shootings are now the norm. Teachers have no power to stop them and the reason is the Obama education director Put in federal law to now enforce criminal behavior of school students. Meaning, killers are among your children at a public school. Home schooling is the only option. Most tax breaks need to be provided because parents who Home school do it all and pay property taxes to support the local school district.
