This ain’t homeschooling, no matter how many times you say it is.

“…homeschooling through charter schools…”

On behalf of California, I’m sorry for this abject stupidity.

Here’s the LttE that started it. I saw it when it came out last week but let it slide since it was written by a kid.

Daryl,
It’s CA. This is about as far away from government as most of us out here can get.

Adrian,
I have been seriously considering just not blogging any homeschooling story out of CA. Y’all’s laws are so screwy and no one seems to really care to keep homeschooling “pure.” If I lived there, it’d be R4 or nothing.

Daryl,

That sounds like a plan. If you’re up for some real fun, try telling a Californian that government isn’t the answer to all our problems. You’re going to set off some extreme cognitive dissonance if you do that, and reduce the person to a perplexed statue or ranting idiot. (That is, of course, unless you’ve run into the 100 or so of us like Roy and me who actually think differently.)

I looked into charters when my son started begging me to homeschool him almost 2 years ago. I couldn’t stomach them. It’s still public school. So of course we went the R-4 route. When my husband gets back from his deployment we’re supposed to be moving to somewhere about 25 miles north of Chicago. I’ll be SO GLAD to leave this state behind. Pretty state, nice weather down here, but not worth the price, all around. We’ll miss our friends, our homeschool group, and our church, but we are ready to get out of here, and I’ve always wanted to go to Chicago.

I haven’t looked much into Illinois homeschool law yet, however….
