Education


First of all, you shouldn't have gotten me started. But, here it goes. My view on education is that everyone should get their education payed for by the government...............................EVERYONE. (O and this doesn't apply to everyone because I'm homeschooled) j/k So what makes me mad is that we pay the taxes for all the other kids to go to school but they don't give us anything back from all that money. They just get mad at us because we are homeschooled. Thats $4200.00 less that they get. (at $6,00.00 per child) I think that if they want the money they should pay for our books AT LEAST and then they would get their extra money so that they would'nt have to do this stupid county question # 1 where they are going to raise the taxes for 20-30 years just because the little kids need a better school. They already have one! I think they should worry about getting everyone a school before they worry about fixing the school for people that already have one.

I'm kind of on the fence of whether the government should pay for everyone's public school education or not. On the one hand it isn't fair to pay taxes and not receive the benefits of those taxes - like having homeschoolers' textbooks and school supplies paid for. On the other hand if they are paid for by the government we are mandated to use what the government will allow. And there are many things I don't agree with that are "taught" in textbooks.

You guys have another ballot issue on raising taxes for education? YUCK!

Ah, Sariah, I hate to tell you this, but homeschool is evil. Don't you know that if you're not in public school you aren't being brain washed and we CANT let that happen!

My opinion is that government, especially Federal, should stay out of education altogether. Not that I think that is likely to happen any time soon, but we can always hope...

p.s. I love your blog!

I TOTALLY agree, Sariah. And Crabapple Farm, homeschooling is NOT evil!!!! It is an alternative to schools in the community that have a lot of drugs and stuff going on, or if the parents just simply want to educate their kids themselves! I am homeschooled, in 8th grade and LOVE IT!!my parents were also homeschooled, and they are the best people i know. And they do not brainwash us!!
