Theresa Coleman recently started homeschooling her children. She thinks that homeschooling can be a good option for some kids, but that the minimal state standards for homeschoolers need to be more vigorously enforced:
First, the law reads that the parent instructing must have a HS diploma or equivalent. However, reporting is not compulsory therefore the State of Georgia has no idea who has a diploma and who does not. For the most part, this is OK except there are some who are taking advantage of this loophole and the entirety of the homeschooling community/culture is suffering. Unless those of us who are diligent and following the law try to amend this ourselves, eventually the Government will indeed step in and "do" something about it. There is precedent for this.
What impressions have you gathered about homeschooling?
