Hello,

Thank you so much for the post.  I am a Buddhist from Missouri and homeschooled my kindergartener last year.  This year I will be taking my 2nd grader out of school and homeschooling both children.  I am looking for a complete homeschool curriculum to use, and your links are most appreciated!

Thankyou so much for the links. I am a Buddhist in Cincinnati thinking about forming a home school group with Buddhism as part of the curriculum. I have a 13 year old boy and a 9 year old girl.

Are there any home-school fathers here? All the home-school materials I've seen seem to assume that mothers will be the home-school parent. Doesn't that strike you as prejudice against women? I believe that to be the real home-school agenda. If you are not guilty, please don't take offense. It seems to me, however, that the national push to home-school is coming from conservatives who believe a woman's place is in the home, and couldn't achieve their unhealthy agenda any other way.

Kathryn,

Could you possibly come up with a different statement? It appears you have two or three that you like to repeat a lot.

I do not see anyone on this thread mentioning even refering to the homeschooling mom. Are you just assuming that all of us are just assuming that that all of the homeschool parents are the mom? I know of 2 families where the dad is the at-home one doing the schooling. However, the fact is, women are far more likely to stay home than men, and there are more religious homeschoolers than any other group and those homeschoolers generally have within their religion that the man works and the woman stays home. I have no problem with a dad being the one homeschooling. But it is rarely seen and it is not at all a sign of sexism that people assume that a homeschooled family means the mom is doing the schooling.

Eighteen years ago I would have thought the very same thing. I was living the nearly radical feminist life, thankfully I stumbled a few people that thought more in the way of duality than him vs her.

My husband homeschools our children. As do I. It is a family effort and I'd have no other way. I have studied and been involved with home educators from around the world for 15 years now, and I firmly believe the real reason is not some sexist 'keep 'em home barefoot and probably prego so they can fetch me my beers and be at my beck and call' agenda. It worries me that anyone would think it is. Homeschool, in my opinion, means a better education for our DAUGHTERS and sons. An education where they are encouraged to do things above and beyond what we were exposed to in public school. The world is their playground, their classroom, and no social hinderances like fear of sexism will scar or hold them back.

Poor Kathryn.  You sincerely do lack a fundamental knowledge of logic. 

The vast majority of plumbers in the United States are men.  In the year 2006, do you really think the reason is prejudice against women?  Quite frankly, I don't know of a single woman who wants to become a plumber.  Of course, there are female plumbers, and I support them wholeheartedly.  But, the fact is, that the vast majority of women in the US have no desire to become plumbers.  The reason has nothing to do with prejudice.  It has to do with women's choices, which you seem only to validate if those choices fall within the range of Kathryn's acceptability.

Did anyone ever say that fathers can't stay home and educate their children?  You're making an argument against yourself that no one here ever made.
