I know that you have at least a small interest in teaching your children from home. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Millions of people do it and the numbers grow every day. The world has become a bit of a scary place these days, and not all of us are comfortable with sending our baby out into that world alone.
All I have to do is mention Columbine, Colorado, and you know what school violence can do. The statistics are only rising, and the perpetrators are getting younger and younger. I remember not too long ago hearing on the news about a first grader who had a handgun in his locker and threatened to kill a fellow student if he didn’t do what he said.
What are equally as disturbing are the test scores that our children are getting on standardized tests. No Child Left Behind provided for testing all children to determine their academic performance and insure that all were getting a quality education.
The results have been disappointing. In math, our students are performing at just 3% of the world average for the same age students. In English, that percentage jumps a little, but only to 7%. Children in other countries are getting better educations than our own kids, and that will eventually hurt us globally.
