Another reason to homeschool... This CNN articleoutlines in my mind another good reason to homeschool. The report concludes that American schools are failing to teach our children to value their country and their democracy, instead focusing too much on the country's failures. In an age where we no longer require the pledge of allegiance, when most Americans DO NOT exercise their right to vote and many people don't know who their representatives are this is truly sad to me.

While I agree with much of the article I think it does not go far enough. It is not just American schools that are failing our country, it is the American people and parents that are failing their children as they pass off total responsibility to the schools.
