Teachers Union Opposes Virtual K-8 Charter School

Corporal Dan Re:Homeschooling (772 comments)

By the way, another thing which helped convince me that it isn't a bad idea was the fact that a lot of homeschoolers are ex-teachers. You would be amazed how many ex-teachers there are doing this. Every ex-teacher I talk to says that public schools waste time and they spent the vast majority of their time on a few kids in a class.
Bingo. My mother taught in a public school, then homeschooled my sister and I, and now teaches again for the same public school system. Her reasoning for the homeschooling: "public schools waste time and they spent the vast majority of their time on a few kids in a class." DSD
