The San Antonio Express News published a very positive article on homeschooling. The best part was that when they presented the obligatory “expert” view on homeschooling who you expected to give the standard “problems with socialization” spiel, you got this instead:

  6. Several years back, I returned to college and obtained my teaching certificate in high school science. After obtaining my teaching certificate, I never taught. I was very disillusioned with the educational system. Grade inflation was ridiculous. A student making an A was probably actually only doing C work and one making a C was probably doing failing work. No wonder colleges complain about the quality of the students there are receiving from high schools. Also, discipline must also be addressed. No learning can take place in a classroom unless you have order in the room. This will require adoption of the appropriate policies and a change in our culture (that is, how the importance of education is viewed by students).
    During my student teaching, I became vividly aware of the impact of immigration on our school systems. Whether it was legal or illegal, as far as the educational system was concerned, it made no difference. The detrimental impact of non-English speaking students in our schools (Texas) cannot be overstated. Schools are required to hire many English as a Second Language teachers to help these immigrant students cope with the English language. This consumes major funds that could have been spent on the children of United States citizens. Additionally, having three or four non-English speaking students in a classroom makes teaching more difficult. Time that could have been spent teaching is instead spent dealing with the issues of non-English speaking students. This takes time away from the other students. Immigrant students should not enter our schools until they can speak and read English; to do otherwise is to rob from our children.
