Thank you Karl, Excellent!|
When I left my home town in Santa Barbara County for Thousand Oaks 13 years ago, it was because my youngest daughter was going to be enrolling in kindergarten soon, and S.B. county school scores were 35-40% lower (because of the number of illegal immigrants).
Well 13 years later, it's ****ed up here too. Big increase in illegal immigrants and all the associated problems.
My 4 kids attend public schools, but their real education is administered at home. My oldest daughter is now a junior in high school and she just got the results of her first SAT test. She scored a 2240 out of a possible 2400 and it wasn't because the public school education. All of our kids have "home" assignments that challenge them, they don't get that at school.
The kids who predictably do well are the home schooled kids, so what does the 2nd Appellate Court in Los Angeles do? They try to make parents of 166,000 home schooled kids criminals for teaching without credentials. The case is going to the California Supreme Court and if it's not over turned, it's going to get very interesting. Link to story: http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?f....
The failing public school system can't be shown up by a bunch of mostly conservative "non-credentialed" parents now can they?
