Re: Should homeschooling be illegal?

I don't know... There have to be some kind of standards in place. I understand why someone would want to homeschool his/her kids, but you have to be up to the task. I could homoeschool for the earlier ages, but I'm certain I couldn't teach grade 11 or 12 math. I barely remember trinomials and polynomials, and I have no grasp of logarithms whatsoever. English, on the other hand, I could teach blindfolded. lol.

But there have to be some standards in place. It needs to be monitored, at the very least, and I think parents should be made to prove that they have the skills to teach at each level. Elementary school subjects are much easier to teach than Junior High and High school subjects. How else would we know that the students are getting an adequate education?
