I've had several public school folks from this and other websites asking unbiased questions in their websearches. They don't stay long, presumably because my website didn't give the REAL story.
Do you want the real story? Here it is!
An AOL search of the "sad story of homeschooling" reveals that children are forced into public schools in divorce cases. Ok, that's a sad story. My blog *somehow* came next.
Next up? A post that links to a news story that pretty plainly states that "homeschooling" families are a bit wacko and are trying to hide stuff. "The school bus never stopped at the secluded trailer on Hickory Crossroads in rural North Carolina," it forbodingly opines, "because for five years Nissa and Kent Warren home schooled their children."
Are you hearing the doom-y music in the background? Um... they found squalid living conditions and some dead kids... must be the homeschooling. Nothing to do with wacky parents who were known abusers and CONVICTED in another state, right?? Good grief.
Ok, ok. One more. The "my son hates being homeschooled" story in which the poster asks for advice. You would think from the oh-so-relevant gay sex remarks written in response that public-schooled children neeeever complain about their teachers, homework, classmates or school rules. Better get that kid into public school post-haste so that he can have a chance at a "normal" life... you know, like commenter "Yiffing in Hell" does. What is yiffing, you ask? Oh, boy, are you going to wish I hadn't provided the answer to that one.
Don't click it unless you really want to know.
