I understand that you have an emotional hate-on for home schooled children, particularly religious home schooled children, and that this hate is immune to reason, so why do you persist in having a false vision of who you are and how you conduct yourself. You've clearly demonstrated to all people in this thread that you don't actually modify your position when it is shown to be false and you do in fact vigorously cling to your preconceived notions. You're projecting onto home schooled children your own glaring intellectual failings.
if the teaching is good, so is the schooling (assumes one or more students ready and willing to learn are present)Do you homeschool your children and do you think you think it's a viable option for other families?
if the teaching is poor, so is the schooling
the building in which it is conducted makes no difference
sponsored a vietnamese refugee family in '75
the dad, a civil engineer, and his wife, a teacher, home schooled their two children after public school was finished for the day
two-three hours each evening. more on weekends
both kids, preteens when they arrived, speaking only vietnamese and french, both got free rides to ivy league schools
suspect the same thing is happening in china, india, japan, south korea today
and applied this technique with my kids. it worked well
but to home school, the parents better have the ability, energy and willingness to make it work. too often they don't, and it doesn't
