    That's why I said I was unconvinced of any judgment. What is also just as suspect are the memes that she was automatically at fault.

    What should be immediately evident is the extreme bias displayed as evidenced by the type of sources who chose to pimp the meme that fathers of homeschooled girls are horny old men who can't control themselves.
    Again, the presumptions that she was completely wrong in her assessment are just as ill-considered.

    Frankly, the child, and the people who spread her little fantasy, should be ashamed.
    As should those who presume she was automatically wrong in her assessment because, "Considering the source, I'd suggest the entire thing is nothing but a made up lie."

    The only reason it became a story was a result of the paranoia and anger people have towards parents who homeschool, based on a bigoted stereotype of the ideological principles such people are perceived to have.
    Projection goes both ways.

    I'll need a citation for that allegation, thanks. I'm not just going to take your word for it.

    Ask a few homeschoolers there are many of them and they are not all uniform in their motives.
    Apparently you lead an insulated and sheltered life.

    BTW that is a citation because my child is one of them and that was the reason we chose homeschooling. Better education. And it worked.

    Parents gave a number of different reasons for homeschooling their children. In the 2011–12 school year, 91 percent of homeschooled students had parents who said that a concern about the environment of other schools was an important reason for homeschooling their child, which was a higher percentage than other reasons listed.

    Insulting me is a citation? Okay.

    Clearly there is far more to her story, and far more to why she was asked to leave.

    Let me add, I have a strong willed 35 year old daughter, who was once a strong willed teenager. My opinion is not formed from ignorance.
    It sounded very suspicious to me as well. This doesn't appear to be a normal reaction from either parents or the school. Men may silently think that a young woman is very attractive, even sexy, but it is very unlikely they would share these thoughts with other fathers.

    Oh thank you.

    91% of parents who participated in the survey said “a concern about the environment of other schools”
    Yup.
