Why the School System Won't Be After My Kids
Many homeschoolers are terrified the school system is going to hunt them down and force them to send their kids to school. This fear is completely out of place in our school system. There's not enough teachers to take care of the students they've already got. Every school year for the past decade the state has started out hundreds of teachers short. Most teachers are already over retirement age, and some are nearing their second retirement. Today we found out that half the teachers at the local elementary school have put in for their retirement at the end of the year. That's an almost unimaginable crisis. Come after homeschoolers? I don't think so. They've got enough trouble on their plate already.
