    Mr. Castillo is back. I’m not sure why.

    All schooling should be evaluated

    When I wrote about home schooling (“Home-schooling may limit education,” Sept. 30), there were many thinking that I was talking about them. I was talking about myself, and how I was home-schooled by the church, and the many untruths that were told to me while growing up, and how I was divided by religion and race by untruth.

    I also understand that those who are home-schooled get the necessary tools to be self-supporting and find good jobs or move to excellent careers.

    What I have witnessed here in Fayetteville is young people graduating from public schools with a diploma saying they had finished 12th grade, and cannot pass a basic entrance exam into military service, or obtain a good job.

    We, the adults, whether we have school-age children or not, need to look at all schooling, making sure that our country has a future by having a well-founded school system, and an education that gives our children the tools they need to make a good living that is non-biased, and to be able to support their future families, however we choose to school our children.

    Now I have a question: Was he really homeschooled?

    I doubt it. He himself says
    “I was home-schooled by the church”

    What the heck does that mean????? I imagine he either attended a private church school (in which case he wasn’t homeschooled) or that he thinks he was brainwashed during Sunday School (in which case he still wasn’t homeschooled).

    Well, he hyphenates “home-schooled” 🙂 Is that a clue?

    However he was educated, I’m not sure that he was well served. 🙁

    This time around, it sounds like his complaint is with public schools. ????
