Throwing down the gauntlet

Since I’m not quite ready to let this whole homeschool “debate” die, here’s a challenge.

I’m asking you, the nebulous and unseen “you”, to defend public school. Not public school when you were in school, not public school 10 years ago. Public education NOW.

Define it, defend it and support it. Provide data, statistics and “cold hard facts”. Experiential testimony is subjective and while enjoyable is often so completely relative it is impossible to base a decision upon.

Fellow homeschoolers, think outside our box and come up with a positive or two about public schooling.

I’ll be surprised of the thread goes over 3 before spiraling downward into emotionalism.

Surprise me.
