So, I’ve been thinking about my last post. I feel like I should make a few things clear. One, I don’t think the company Dan is working for is nefarious in any way. I think, like many homeschoolers, I tend to forget that most people have never considered homeschooling one way or another. It’s a foreign concept and most people have no frame of reference. It was probably unfair of me to write about all of this without considering this.
After 10 years of homeschooling, I’m focused on getting my kids educated and started on productive lives. I’ve lost that evangelical zeal about the subject that I had when we first started. I am happy to talk about homeschooling with anyone who has a real interest, but not so much interested in spreading the “word” with people who have no interest. Still, it’s easy to forget that what we take as an integral part of our lives is absolutely bizarre to most people.
OK, just had to get this off of my chest. My other concerns remain, but I wanted to be fair.
