It has been my experience that many of them do.

Can't do any worse then what public schooling is turning out in many places.


Data shows they don't pass standardized tests. This has been looooong tract

That's interesting.
May I see this data concerning home schooled students failing to pass standardized tests?


You can look it up. :11900:

It appears you're wrong about the standardized tests. In the US, home schooled children do better.

An interesting fact is that in Finland, their public schools do better than US children overall. They are #1. So it's not about public vs. home school in my opinion. It's how the schools are structured and what sort of programs are provided.

To pass the standardized tests, you need to study for them as the child's parent.

After that, you relay the teaching to your child during their homeschooling.

There is no reason why every black child in America can't succeed like this wonderful young woman.

What exactly is your ideology?!
I'll be honest. I like black culture forums, so I've signed up for this one, BX, and Lipstick Alley. I won't post too often, only on things that I'm really interested in. Nice to meet you. :)
