    By the time I say it will be time to move. Hooah!
  1. I've gotten so many great ideas from this thread!
  2. To incorrecty state the law. He told them that they could not legally pull their children out to homeschool and insinuated consequences for doing so.
  3. A parent has a child in kindergaten that is very hyper and behind acedemically. She put him on meds and he was worlds better socially but still very much behind the others. The school staff and parents were in a meeting becuase he will most likely be held back. The parent informed them that she refused to continue medicating him because of the side effects, she then voiced her intent on homeschooling him. The principle told her that once a child has been in the school system for more than 20 days they could not pull him out to homeschool. Is that even legal for the principle to say? I already
  4. But that is the main problem, it is not unpleasant to the those who are rarely-if ever on the receiving end of discrimination. The bottom post just made me shake my head. There was a time when interracial marriages were legally forbidden and supported under the guise of religion (just like slavery was condoned through it) and you could exchange homosexuals with interracial couples and it's the same discriminatory nonsense. My parent told me of a Pastor who refused to marry them because they were mixed race and found scriptures in hopes of showing them God's plan that they break up and mix
  5. You get it.....you really get it. You can't change what you don't acknowledge. Race has changed so much over the last 200 years. Irish used to be outside the white race and then later the Italians were allowed to enter into the "white community" (a community they were on the outside of too) so to boost the numbers against the growing African American population. People in charge make these rules up as they go and the everyday person believes it as fact. The first step is to honestly admit what we believe and be open to a new way of thinking.
  6. Everyone I know announces it after the fact, so anyone reading knows they "made the cut" lol and we have no idea who didn't make it so it doesn't get much attention other than a few people saying "Yeah! I made it" "I better not had been cut lol" stuff like that. I don't announce
  7. The whole thing is just deflating and it the worst part is this is happening no more than it always has, we just see it more thanks to technology.
  8. In Germany, it was a big deal to be out on the economy in your uniform. Here the rules are the same, but hard to avoid if soldiers have things to do on their lunch hour. We haven't heard anything about this new threat.
  9. Thank you all so much! It is already an emotional and frustrating process because this is not what we planned. So my anxiety level is already high. I do tend to have habit of "borrowing trouble". I'm trying to take a deep breath and just roll with it.
  10. Thanks I don't know why I'm so stressed. Then to top it all, I forgot to put science on there now it looks like that subject wasn't ever covered.
  11. I have to go into the actual classroom so I can finish my degree, so DD will have to go back to a brick and mortar school and will be entering as a second grader. When we withdrew her in March, we filled out a withdrawal form permitting the current school to send the new cover school her transcripts. We live in AL and must have a cover school (at the time I enrolled her). I got her transcripts by mail on Friday, the envelope is see-through and I can tell its only 1 pieces of paper, basically the paper I sent in showing her grades, subjects and what curriculum I used and it only covers from Ma
  12. I loved the Anchorage Libraries. I wasn't homeschooling at the time but their selection is a lot more extensive than most would think. I actually prefer it to the part of Georgia we moved to.
  13. What do you believe your role consists of as a homeschooling parent (to teach traditions, encourage social reform, focus on intellect..)? What do you believe your child's role is in his/her education?
