I came across this comment on an MSN forum and wonder what others think.
"By the way I am a teacher ,I had to study years of child development and psyc ,as well as subject material ,how everyone now thinks they can home school is a joke.Even Judge Judy asks what university did you graduate from ?when someone says they home school.How do they feel so qualified!"
This comment is a good example of why I homeschool. I have met too many college graduates who have poor writing skills like this. I have seen GATE and middle school honors students count on their fingers when presented with basic arithmetic problems.
How can students be expected to learn from teachers who lack basic reading, writing and math skills? Yes, there are a lot of good teachers but they can't make up for the failings of the many bad teachers. I think it is unreasonable to question the qualifications of homeschooling parents when there are so many incompetent teachers in our schools.
