it almost seems like the attitudes of public schools
today is, "I don't care if you learn anything, just as long
as you attend." Call this page: Poor Attitudes
The following are excerpts from letters we
have received from parents interested in receiving help and information
on homeschooling in Indiana. Specifics have been removed for privacy.
We are publishing these posts in an effort to portray to the general
public and the media, a more balanced picture of why parents are
transferring their children out of their local public schools to
educate them at home.
We are looking for someone who can provide home
schooling for our kids in the Evansville area. We have one girl
who is 11 years old and one boy who is 14 years. They are A students
but we are dissatified with the public school atmosphere.
My 17 yr. old daughter was told by a teacher that
she was not going anywhere in life and did not know why she even
came to school and that she just might as well "drop out". Have
tried to get a conference but cannot. Teacher told me she would
choose "not" to attend. So my daughter had to drop out of the class,
take a failing grade and loose credits. (11th grade)
