Re: “The double standard in Arkansas education: Accountability in real schools, but not at home

I was homeschooled, along with my brothers and sisters. We all graduated from private colleges with 3.5-4.0 averages and have gone on to have successful careers and lives. Those of us that have elementary age children homeschool them because we loved it so much. Not because we are scared of black people (my sister in law is black and we love her), because we think public school is evil, or because we are stupid (thank you VERY much), but because I love to spend more time with my children. I also love that homeschooling allows me to tailor their education to their interests, spend time on something they are struggling with that day and give them more individual attention than in a classroom setting.

They stopped the standardized testing when
common core curriculum came out because homeschoolers do not use common core. There is no sense in testing them under common core standards as it will not give an accurate reading of where the children really are. Commone core math is done much differently!

Lets quit bashing each other and honor our choices on how to educate our children. We should treat others the way we are teaching our children how to treat others and live by example. Its the only way they learn.
