Normally why we
homeschool news would be posted on Monday, but this Monday was a holiday, and
that backed up my whole week! So here it is on Wednesday.
In the Our Schools Are Not Safe For Children category,
we have School Violence: If your child’s public school suffered from persistent
violence would you really know? Maybe not, according to the June issue of
Reason magazine: the problem is school administrators across America are not
coming clean about violence in their schools so as not to run afoul of No Child
Left Behind. But if you were informed about violence in school, there is still
the problem of predatory employees, which public schools are also failing to
combat. If your child manages, by God’s providence, to escape bodily harm from
classmates and school employees, then there is the problem of local governments
allowing convicted [s-x] offenders to live near schools.
After this news, the fact that some schools
promote students to the next grade despite getting all Fs on their report cards
seems not so bad.
