What If Public Education Never Existed?

As a homeschool mom, I spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about school – public school, to be exact.

No, I haven’t been thinking of sending my kids back – perish the thought! What I have been thinking about is what life today would be like if the public education system never existed.

Ever.

To be sure, proponents of government schooling would claim that society wouldn’t be where it is today without it, and I’d have to agree with them.

But that isn’t a good thing.  Continue reading “What If Public Education Never Existed?”

Here’s the Real Reason Why Public Education Will Never Get Better….

Have you ever had an issue you were really passionate about but felt like you had to tiptoe around, so as not to upset a bunch of people?

For me, that issue is public education.

To be sure, I’ve certainly tackled the issue more than a few times here on my blog, but I’ve always held back just a bit because I didn’t want to make anyone mad. (Although a few people always seem to get irritated, anyway.)

Well, I’ve decided that I’m not going to hold back any longer.  Continue reading “Here’s the Real Reason Why Public Education Will Never Get Better….”
