LOL!! I would, but from what I've seen, they have no clue. I get mixed messages from that group (teachers). I've had many give a huge sigh of relief when they heard I homeschooled. They said thank you to me on behalf of my children because they know first hand what a circus the education system is. I've had only a small handful react otherwise and they were so misguided.. and very old LOL. There are SO many teachers and doctors etc etc etc that homeschooled their kids. It's not a mystery why. Once upon a time it was better for children. Not anymore! Although, it's ridiculous.. you need a PhD to even answer phones these days. It definitely is a way to control the masses and yet they're too stupid to see it's the first step in most people's failures. They grow up thinking their is only one path and when they fall off it, they get lost. They keep thinking of ways to reshape it and get more and more and more in those little skulls, not seeing that the answer is so simple. And I promise you.. the numbers are rising on the other side of the fence. Homeschooling is growing like a big beautiful weed lol.. they will stomp it out. They get money per child and with so many opting out.. well, you can see the issue for them. So many people complain about it because it's not what they grew up with and not once do they actually look at the stats that will show them exactly why we do this. Homeschooled children are by far more well rounded and test higher in all areas. Of COURSE there are going to be some who are sheltered and not learning a thing.. are they trying to tell me every single child in school is happy and getting straight As??? lmao. And yes, I've sort of noticed we're very similar lol. Maybe it's the English blood OOohhh maybe we're related!!! haha.. could you imagine? I am sorry you had to go through that too though. Makes me wonder all the time who I would have become had they not interrupted my growth and learning with school, where they stomped it all out of me and made it uninteresting. I was always a curious child, figuring everything out on my own.. how things worked, recreating them, fixing problems, researching and discovering the world.. then BAM, I'm shoved into a seat, told to stay there, stop learning and start memorizing. Awful. It wasn't until recently I got back on the path I started out on, which is really really sad. I use my brain.. I probably would have done something great with it. Just like you will I ended up doing something far better with my brain though, so maybe it was all for the best. Just because I'm not a scientist, doesn't mean I'm not doing something very very important. That's the problem though isn't it? Everyone thinks if they don't end up in a lab or famous, they failed and the effort ends.
