Smart Mama: Homeschooling as a Career

From the Heritage Foundation: "These days women get more bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees than men do. And yet many women don’t feel up to the task of educating their own children.

Never mind that we live in a country where women are brain surgeons, rocket scientists, CEOs and presidential candidates. Schooling is best left to professional educators, moms have been told for decades, so pack the kids onto the school bus and leave the rest to the real experts.

Contrast that with the “go-girl” themes that have saturated American culture since at least the early 1970s: Set your sights high. Be anything you want to be.

And that includes being your child’s teacher, educational entrepreneur Leigh Bortins says."

Leigh (pictured) actually parlayed her homeschool endeavor into a thriving business.

Update: While we're on the topic of home ed., this reporter lobbies for a moratorium on Tebow mania.

No! Not now! Not ever!

'Nother Update: This column, by Phyllis Schlafly, about Islamic and Mexican propaganda being taught as American history, is yet another wake-up call to concerned parents why alternatives to the K-12 public schools, remain of utmost important.
