Exceptions to Home Education

Sometimes, the conveyor belt is just a better idea all around......

“I just want to say that I'm against home schooling in the following areas: med school, dental school, firefighting certification, pilot training, and military stuff like artillery and tank qualification. Call me old fashioned, but I just think that official, regimented, certified programs with the proper teaching facilities are the way to go in those cases. Also, I'm NEVER going back to that homeschooled dentist again. He was horrible.”

I'm with you regarding dentists! Take a look at my dentist and you'll never go to a homeschooled dentist again!

Hey Arlene did I not tell you of the Hang Glider I bought, and then taught myself to fly. These skills are highly rated by the suicidal.
