13. "bookmarking article for later! always thinking of homeschooling" In response to In response to 0
my question is: what was the final tipping point to make the homeschool decision for you? how did you and your wife look at her professional life when making the decision - was it something she wanted to come back to or felt like this would mean giving it up for good?
i'm basically homeschooling my daughter in math because her school/teacher does a terrible job at progressive education and math and at a decision point professionally.
and then there's black culture/history german culture/history and black german culture/history that she will never get in school
when they went over the month of february with her 2/3 class, i think she might have been the only child who'd heard of a black history month
and yet her white male teacher decided earlier this year to have a classroom talk about "the protests" that i found so inappropriate and "othering" for black/latino kids. things like that just make me want to pull her immediately.
but there's violin, art, choir, movement at her school that we couldn't entirely replace in a homeschool context
i go back and forth on all of the points but have been really thinking about it for next year because i don't think there's an option for a mixed 3/4 class and she's always been ahead of her peers and i don't want her in a 2/3 class again next year.
