Homeschooling is very popular among those with libertarian beliefs.
After all, the public school teachers, especially in Michigan, are overwhelmingly big-party Democrats due to unionization. Many of them often incorporate their politics into their lesson plans.
My family was very successful with homeschooling. Both my son and duaghter received full scholarships to state colleges based on their high test scores and academic excellence. In fact, almost all homeschoolers are very successful in college.
Homeschooling used to be unusual, but the number of families choosing to homeschool grows at an estimated rate of 7–15 percent per year.
In recent years, homeschoolers have proven themselves. By grade 8, the average homeschool student performs four grade levels above the national average. And who wins most of the spelling bees?
Many people actually think that homeschoolers are not “socialized,” which is a joke for those of us who have been involved in homeschooling communities.
Over the years, I have written stories poking fun of those who criticize homeschoolers. For example, there is a spoof I published called “Why Public Schooling is better than homeschooling.” There is also another satire called “Spunky homeschooler rebuts arrogant public school advocate.”
Luckily, the homeschooling laws in Michigan are considered lenient. For complete information on homeschool laws, curricula, facts and statistics, please see the Home School Legal Defense Association website.
