Well said Ladyfisher. I applaud you for pulling your kids from school and homeschooling, (I think that's what you meant). If I had children at home today they would not be in public school. That isn't because of the teachers, their hands are tied. I know many teachers, one of whom is my sister, and they often chafe at what they're required to do. Good teachers can't do what a poor administration, (read "government"), won't allow them to do
