Boy, Voddie Baucham is right, (as he usually is), public schoolers really ARE idiots. XD

That would be funny if it weren't so ridiculous.

LOL! Wow... "What do they teach in schools these days?" I'd like to hear that individual try to explain where the "no animals harmed" store bought meat comes from!

Tofu. They've gotta mean tofu . . . tofu is a meat, right?

*rolls eyes*

Same folks who think butter will lead to arterial misery, but "I-can-sorta-believe-it-tastes-something-like-butter-flavored-food-by-product" synthetic machine lubricant will lead to a long and healthful life, I guess.

That is downright hilarious! As if every kind of meat at the store is artificial.
I am just so impressed with the public school system. (Sarcasm)

Yes, there are problems with the public school systems (internationally), yes, homeschooling is good, but comments such as "public schoolers really ARE idiots." are downright offensive. In the interest of full disclosure, I am mostly public schooled, and am a trained schoolteacher. No, we don't teach things like that in the schools I have taught in.

I do see homeschooling as a fantastic schooling option. It enables a number of things that public school cannot (e.g. substantial one-to-one attention), but that doesn't mean that we are all idiots. I agree that the statement made is stupid (hunting is often an instant kill, resulting in almost no suffering - I totally agree, a lot of young men at my church hunt), but inferring that I, as your sister in Christ, am an idiot because of the way my parents chose to educate me, is not fair and not true. On that note, how many homeschooling parents were educated in the public system? Are they 'idiots'? Defend homeschooling, absolutely, it is a good and valid education style, but don't belittle those of us who were educated differently. The system may be broken for some people, but it doesn't mean that we all end up as bumbling fools as adults!

The person who replied first, Johann, stated:

Ok, I didn't understand where you were coming from. (I guess it helps to read my own comments!)

That was poorly worded on Johann's part, although I think he was trying to criticize the system, not the people. Many people, even homeschoolers, make idiotic decisions.

However the public school system is unbiblical, dishonoring to God, and teaches few real life skills.
My parents and many of my home schooled friends' parents were public schooled. And they'll be the first to tell you that they have learned more about life from books and fellowship than from the public school system. The public school system is a training ground for serfs, dependent on the mother state, and is a main reason for our country being in the situation it is today.

Thank you for your response to my concern. I am in no position to comment on he American public school system, but find your perspective on it very interesting.
