I’m totally against homeschooling. There is no parent that can do the job of a professional educator. There is no substitute for the socializing of a child in this matter. I hated school. We all did, but we went anyway. It was where we belonged for 8 hours. It was our job. But we did fun things like play sports, start clubs, go get pizza, or smoke dope on the back stairs. Your options were limitless.
I think homeschooling is a form of cruelty, a way for you to shield your child from the regular world simply because you are afraid of it and don’t understand it.
Legislators in some states have such lax laws about homeschooling that the school doesn’t have to be notified that the child is not registering. There’s no oversight of the process.
And should it surprise any sicko would use the homeschooling system to torture and kill children?
While it doesn’t speak for the majority of homeschooled children, there are some who become victims of daily abuse, and even death, at the hands of their parents who use the system to sneak under the radar.
In January, Jacole Prince, a mother from Kansas City, Missouri, was sentenced to 34 years in prison for abusing her oldest daughter.
The 10-year-old was rescued from a locked closet, located inside the family’s apartment. At the time of her rescue, the girl fit into toddler-size clothing, weighed just 32 pounds and had marks on her body that indicated she was physically abused.
In October of last year, the body of Janiya Thomas, 10, was found in a freezer, located inside her mother’s Florida home.
Nice. The fucking state, parish or county that these things happen in should be fined and found guilty of negligence.Furthermore, we’re creating a generation of ignoramuses. Federalizing school participation needs to happen now before any one else is having their education jeopardized-the results can be deadly.
