Yes, you heard it right. Seven days and we are out of the government school system. No more due dates, no more portfolio to turn in, no more testing. Just plain old real life learning and some pre-algebra, writing, history and many science, geometry, & physics.
I will be packing and returning materials, as well as pc's and printers. After that, I have to write a letter to intent to teach my children on my own. It will be sent to my local public school. To let them know that I am taking over.
I was told that, every April, the local public school will sent me an applications for my children to take the standardize testing, but not to worry. All I have to do is send them a note telling that I don't want my children participating on any type of testing. Like I said before in my previous posts, the testing is not for the students. The testing are for the local public school teachers, going to the Department of Education. The PDE wanted to know if the teachers are teaching the children anything, and for some kind of funding for the public schools.
Since I am not a certified teacher, they cannot fire me and I don not need funding from them. They don't have any say, if I say NO to testing my children. Plus, they push the children being taught at home because they are better on taking test. And that my readers are good in the public schools resume. They are taking credit for those children that they never met and taught for promotions and funds. They are sick.
