Tim Challies has an excellent entry describing his family’s reason to not homeschool their children. In a comment on his site, I assured him that I would not accuse him of plagiarism, although it sure appears that he has mined my brain for the gold therein related to this subject.
Choosing to not homeschool can be just as strategic as choosing to homeschool. If you’ll read his thoughts, you’ll probably arrive at our families’ similar conclusions for deliberately choosing our local public school system.
In addition to that, I must add that Carolyn and I have discovered a depth of pride in our local public schools. We have responsive and creative administrators and teachers for whom we are grateful. Our children enjoy school and the relationships that are create there. In addition, being a part of the public school system provides us with an opportunity to meet influencers and have influence in the educational process of our community.
