Pro-Homeschool, but not Anti-Public School


Public school bashing is not attractive in any homeschooling family.  I miss the nuance of being able to discuss the pros of one things without dismissively, and sometimes ignorantly, bashing the other. Can we get that to that please?

This is Pro-Homeschool website, not an Anti-Public School website.   

It is possible to be fully committed to homeschooling for your family while still acknowledging the many benefits of public school for millions of children in our country. 

I can see the faults in the system, while still praising the dedicated people who choose to become public school teachers.  

It is a nuanced conversation, but it can be had. The world is not black and white.  Not all public schooling is bad, and not all homeschooling is the best option for a family. It is easy to slip into an "us vs. them" mentality in today's world, but it does no one any good.

If you have come to tthis website or some anti-public school rhetoric, I hope you have come to the wrong place.  I will of course comment on the reasons I chose to homeschool, and that may sometimes be critical of certain aspects of public school, but this is not a public school bashing site.  

Again, this is a nuanced and complex conversation.  I miss nuance.
