With all the craziness that surrounds schools now-a-day would you consider home schooling?!



Why or why not?

No. Things like this have been going on since the beginning of time.

No. People are killed every day in car crashes, but I don't stop driving on the roads.

No. Isolated incidents don't cause abrupt paranoia for me. I'll still send my kids to school on Monday. Besides, someone else would do a better job at educating my children than I would.

I already considered it, but not because of this.



More kids die from car crashes and I still let my kid get in cars.

No, like I stated in another thread:



Will you still go to the movies (even after the CO shootings)?
Will you still go to the mall (even after the OR shootings this week)?



We can't shelter ourselves or our kids because of this. Homeschooling is something that can't be decided on lightly and this should have nothing to do with one's decision to homeschool or not.

No... everyone I have ever met that was home schooled was very anti social and also didnt really understand what is and isnt apprpreate in a social setting. School is an important part of a childs development in my mind.

No offense. But, who is going to home school her, you?



You have tons of grammatical errors in your post.

You do realize that it is healthy to have an idea of how dangerous it can be, right?

As am I. Touch screens don't slaughter sentence structure and verb tenses.

No, I would like to go to work. Plus, I feel my child will have a better education from someone who has a college degree in teaching. I also don't feel the need to shelter children. I would like to him to be able to work as a team with his peers and have as much social interaction as he can get. I'm not going to be here forever.
