Odd coming from a future teacher. Well, then we'll be two teachers
Why become a teacher if I dislike public schools?
To make change, to give public school children a better chance.
See, what is the point of sending the kids to school if they are going to have a lot, if not all the material taught to them AGAIN at home?
Also, school homework is strictly for students and schools do not expect parents to help out with same.
Anyway, that's my last post about the schools in my home country. It is completely off topic here.
Thank you all for your inputs. I do appreciate it.
I will not be visiting this forum in the near future.
mammacanary.... your post reminds me of a boy I grew up with. He had terrible asthma.
His mother bought an artificial Xmas tree for his classroom teacher to use ach yr. Once we got up to 5th grade and changed rooms for osme classes she would buy one for each classroom. One teacher refused, saying it wasn't Xmas without a real tree. My friend ended up spending that class time in the library for 3 weeks. I also remember him getting really sick when they were painting the hallways one time.
Not Christmas without a real Christmas tree? She was a real sweetheart. What about it's not christmas unless we are considerate of the fellow humans around us. I guess her idea of christmas was excluding a little boy from his class during the holidays. That is so sad.
I have spent time in Europe and have experience with the schools in those areas, the school system here is nothing like over in Europe....just look at the stats for schoolchildren here in America and I think your question about why people homeschool would answer itself. It is very well known and well documented (eg test scores, etc) that America has a very crappy educational system compared to other countries, it is really a shame that America can't educate yet is one of the best and biggest and richest countries in the world! It is sad really.

Secondly, what you describe is not the thoughts nor education I received in this country. While I completely agree with
|Also, if a child is not planning to go to university, then there is no need to get A+ in that class. A simple passing grade would be enough (in which case no tutor or help would be required).|
|Also, school homework is strictly for students and schools do not expect parents to help out with same.|
Personally, I'd rather be more of a leader in my children's lessons than follow someone else's examples.
Please don't go! None of the mamas here are hostile, they just want to enlighten you and inform you since you asked. Many are passionate, which is as it should be. But learn from this to become a better teacher and mother, don't shy away in defensiveness.
