Here is a quote that worries me:

"If we have taken the position as home-schoolers that government schools are bad for us morally, socially, and academically, how can we support a position that will help get kids back in the system part-time or anytime? We can't sacrifice our children for sports, electives, or even academics." - Yvonne Bunn, executive director of the Home Educators Association of Virginia

No offense, I homeschool because I feel AT THIS TIME it is the best method of learning for my daughter. If I decide to use the school part time to augment her education, there should be nothing wrong with using any and all resources available.

In my opinion Homeschooling is about making the best educational choices for your children. It is not an All or nothing proposal. If I chose to let my daughter partipate in public school programs, there is nothing wrong with choosing to do so.

When a person makes a statement like this, it is no longer about what is best for thier children, it's a political agenda.
