The education might be better in private school but private school kids are generally worse. I know from experience. I went to both private and public schools. Private school kids were more and entitled and always seemed to get their hands on some good drugs. Almost like a hierarchy of snobs. Public school was a joke but it seemed like all private school cared about was the religious aspect of everything. I hated high school and elementary school. Couldnít stand the thought of being told what to do everyday. If I had to choose again I wouldnít change going to both. School is school. Some people loved high school. I hated it. Private and public. Both made me miserable. But not enough to go on a shooting rampage.

Chew on this Bill. How many of the traits from the list you think this kid exhibited?

10 Reasons You Should Definitely NOT Homeschool

February 16, 2016 By Kris Bales

1. Your kids will be weird and unsocialized. I mean, really. Didnít you meet your neighborís auntís cousinís nephewís kids? They were homeschooled and so very weird.

2. Your kids wonít get to go to prom. They are going to miss that rite of passage. Youíre going to miss out on a chance to spend hundreds of dollars for your kid to go dancing for a couple of hours. Itís the one night that will probably outshine the entirety of your homeschool experience. Your kids canít miss prom. Donít homeschool!

3. Your kids will sit around all day doing nothing. Nothing. Just video games and TV all day.

4. Your kids will be pale and unhealthy from being in the basement all the time. Because thatís what homeschooling parents do. Just lock the kids in the basement. All day. Doing nothing but watching TV and playing video games.

5. Youíre not smart enough. Donít do it! Donít homeschool. Youíre probably not smart enough.

6. Your kids wonít be ready for the real world. Donít homeschool your kids! They will not be prepared for the real world. They wonít get to experience mean teachers, mean kids, bullying, or any of those other things that prepare kids for life after high school.

7. Your kids will only be able to get menial labor jobs. Didnít you know? All fast food employees are homeschoolers. That information is accurate as reported by someone who told one of my Facebook followers that we need lots of homeschool grads because we need people to work at the fast food places.

8. Your kids will never find anyone to date. How will your kids ever find anyone to date if you homeschool?! Iím sure this is a big concern for those of you with kids in elementary school. Youíve got to start Ďem early.

9. Your kids wonít learn how to interact with difficult people. People will be mean to them and theyíll just burst into tears or run away or some such.

10. You probably donít have enough patience. If you dare to homeschool, youíll probably just wind up running screaming from your house all crazy-eyed with your hair sticking up all over the place one day. Nobody wants that. Donít do it.

https://www.weirdunsocializedhomesch...ot-homeschool/
those have to be some dumbest things I have ever read. May I respond with my list that I didn't steal from some liberal asswipe asswipe named Kris Bales.

don't send your kids to public school because:

1. They will meet other kids with no morals and end up getting pregnant.

2. they will learn they evolved from monkeys so they will act like monkeys and shoot each other. Afterall there is no consequence. You can't argue this because it is happening all the time. So your kids have a better chance of ending up dead in a public school ran by morons.

3. They will get beat up and tortured by kids that have parents sometimes they are bullied so bad they kill themselves.

4. They will have all kinds of peer pressure to do drugs they never would even see or or hear about if they are homeschooled.

5. The govt that is corrupt will put their liberals agenda on them to give them a farked up view of the world. So they will be good snow flakes in college.

6. There is no discipline so again the monkeys take over and abuse the teachers.

7. is not allowed in school because they teach the monkey theory so kids don't think anythign will happen( like an erternity in ) for killing their classmates.

8. They will also catch bad disease from sleeping with everybody because the world says that's ok.

9. They will learn to hate america and the americane way because that is what liberals think.

10. They will be taught to hate being white because they are priviledge and should be ashamed of their white heritage. They will also be taught skewed history to show how bad america is. My daughter was taught about slavery for a freak'n whole year in history. A year.

public school. IF my kids were school age, i would never send them to that shitty indoctrination institution by our govt.

I think vouchers should be the law that way parents can send their kid to learn from people that don't have pensions and our competitive to do better. I feel sorry for black people in the inner city to send their kids to those holes that they could very well end up being shot, raped or murdered and geet a education to boot.

Ok Bill, Iíll break it down to the simplest level for you.

If this kid would of went to public school he might of developed social skills. Skills to get a GF.

If the kid was getting some , Iím sure this bombing wouldnít of happened.

So by that rational the public school shooting kids get a ton of yet they still mow down kids in the highschool. Do you want me to list how many kids the public school has put out that murdered people compared to homeschool'd kids?

if you love youre kids don't send them to monkey theory public school war zones.

What the heck i'll do anyway

Bill, I believe that the actual numbers show that despite the liberal complaints to the contrary, home schooled students do better than either public school or (most) private schools...
but the reality of the situation is not so much the quality of the education itself ( and with social promotion and lowered standards public school education is not what it used to be), but is the environment the kids are raised in. Most who home schooling parents are actually involved parents, the teach values, responsibility and respect to their kids all the time not just during education time...so I believe it is the quality of the parenting that gives most home schooled kids the edge in life.

Home schooling is usually better for brighter kids, especially in the earlier years. The bar is set pretty low in elementary school. Many kids enter Kindergarten reading at a second grade or higher level while some kids can't read at all. A third of children in Houston and the surrounding areas don't even speak English yet. Home schooling allows many kids to start at the higher level and work from there. Only option in elementary in many cases is for kids to start at higher grades but there are issues with them being in class with much older children. High school offers AP and Honors programs for smarter kids and those programs often don't exist in most elementary schools.

I agree, home life is the most important key...
kids can do well in a good system,and better than most in any system if their parents stay involved and give them the actual direction they need.
Parents who are not involved and do not keep up with their kids progress are all too common and are the reason our public school systems have slid so much.

Word. Teachers can't teach them everything they need to know. My daughter does well in school and is very well behaved there but we are just now starting to have some issues at home with her being very ungrateful. I'm not sure if it is because she is adjusting to no longer being an only child or if it's because she has never had to do without. Her and her attitude are signed up for a lot of volunteer work to help under privileged kids in the next few months. I told her I had to spend a lot of time doing it when I was a kid. Left out the part about it being court ordered.

Good ol court ordered community service. Take my younger sister with you for the attitude adjustment work you signed your daughter up for. She’s turning into a . Couldn’t be bothered to go to our grandmothers funeral because she wanted to stay home and smoke pot with her other juvenile delinquent friends. And my mom has checked out as a parent. But I can’t say anything or I look like a douche.

My father always said aliens abduct your children at age 16 but not to worry because they bring them back when they are in their 20s.
