horn Home School Curriculum: "academically third-rate and theologically fourth-rate"
Warning for home schooler's:
If you do Home School, do it well, with a better curriculum than ACE provides.
I know a lot of LOP'ers home school, thought some might like this critique of ACE.

A lot of the material that children are exposed to in the Accelerated Christian Education is just astonishingly stupid, according to a former Christian fundamentalist.

Blogger Jonny Scarmanga shared some of the multiple-choice questions he found in some ACE packets used by British home-school students Monday on the blog, Leaving Fundamentalism.

“ACE says its curriculum is used in 192 countries and 6000 schools worldwide. This is happening nearer than you think,” Scaramanga said. “All this means that parents are more likely to choose this academically third-rate and theologically fourth-rate education for their children. This has got to stop.”

Home School Curriculum: "academically third-rate and theologically fourth-rate"
Any parent who home-schools needs to have a good understanding of childhood developmental stages and what a normal child should be able to accomplish at all stages.

Our neighbor (eight kids) decided to home school. There she was, trying to teach the older middle and high school students while she ran after toddlers. As often as not, she would give up on the teaching and send the kids outside to play. The first four turned out to be considerable slackers. Too bad we moved as I would like to see if she ever ended up with one which had at least a modicum of initiative.

Do you have school age children? I'm just curious if this is a topic that touches you personally or do you just find random articles on the internet to copy and paste here?

O.P. would like to opine that children need to be taught about the virtues of the Muslim religion and the evils of Christianity?

Rampant stupidity alarms me and I care deeply about how anti-science many curriculum's are in private schools and home education. I feel many good things could come from well educated citizens.
I have worked in education for many years, no children. I do have two family members (nephews) that were home schooled. Both of them are now college age, and they firmly believe the earth is 6,000 years old and that evolution is not supported by science and it is a lie perpetrated as a conspiracy, to persecute Christians. They told me the ice at the North and South pole could have come from commit strikes. It goes on and on... I pity them for the drubbing they will take for their bad education, if they can even get into college.
So yes, it is personal. Heartflowers

This is crossing the line. If you liberals want another civil war keep telling people how they should raise THEIR kids.

Do you know how stupid you sound when a thread about concern for science based education, gets you to the point of being ready to enact civil war?
Dude, lay off the coffee, or the crack or whatever you are hyped up on.
It's a tread about curriculum's and the need for well informed scientifically educated citizens. It is not a march with war drums seeking a civil war. Heartflowers

Parents choose to homeschool for many reasons.
One of them could be to limit their child's exposure to people like you.
It's really none of your business.
You just stated you don't even have kids.

Home-Schooled Teens Ripe for College
Myths about unsocialized home-schoolers are false, and most are well prepped for college, experts say.

It is my business, my profession, my country, my community, and my family so.... have a great day:Cheer

I am not against home schooling, I am against Bad home schooling that teaches creationism BS and that ignores a science component. I do not want those types of curriculum's ACE for example, getting accredited for mass marketing to families that don't know about the lack of science and the amount of stupidity in their curriculum.

What's your point with this article He Man? Let's have the agenda.
Do you think that homeschool curriculums should be regulated by the state?

Government is not a thing, it is a belief.
