Not an article about homeschooling, but certainly an article that shows yet another good reason to start/continue homeschooling!

Soon the homeschooled will take over the world! (Insert evil laugh...)

It is just another sign that the movie "Idiocracy" was prophetic perfection. haha!

Sigh... Unfortunately, that happens way too often. We have to teach to the slowest kids.

This reminds me of the school district I grew up in. The principal of the jr high told the district that "The kids in my school can't read because their families are low income"

Since when does money have to do with ability to learn?

So true!

I remember complaining that my "Richer" friends had nicer things and that is why their house was cleaner...

My mom laughed and then said, "Elbow grease doesn't cost a thing!"
