There's a word or two, probably not terribly kind, for people like me, but I'll risk hearing the criticism again. Here goes: One of the reasons I homeschool is that I'm not terribly interested in what everyone else is doing -- how woefully underprepared Suzy Homeschool's kids are, how inarticulate Peggy Publicschool's kids are, etc.
Really. Not. Interested.
I'm concerned about the progress of three kids, for now. Hey, look at that. They all live here.
I've mentioned over the last seven years that I am most decidedly not a homeschooling evangelist -- I do not think home education is the answer to all that ails our public school classrooms.
The fact that we homeschool is among the very last things that we share with people. As a matter of fact, if I can avoid revealing it, let alone discussing it, I will. As I've said here and elsewhere many, many times before, I'm not interested in educating the public about homeschooling, I'm bored by idle and small chatter, and I loathe the pigeonhole into which my family is filed once folks learn we homeschool. Sorry. None of the stereotypes apply here, and I'd rather not have my children labor under the smallmindedness of others, so I don't advertise how they are educated.
