I'm wary of home schooling - partly because often, but not always, parent's appear to try to do it on the cheap - but it also depends on the local public/state-run schools
I think the fuller quote from the OP is much more interesting - both about home schooling (elementary school age), and about why pale.emperor apparently choose to quote-mine as he did:
Well I got taken to court about homeschooling my children and the
court ruled that since I didn't go to college to be a teacher then I
didn't qualify to teach my children at home.
started High School I was in all the honorary classes and I went to
college and High School at the same time. My goal was to go to UC Davis
and become a vetrinarian and since it takes approx. 10yrs I wanted to
get a head start.
Due to circumstances my college fund
was spent by my step-mother and I was thrown out of the house the year I
graduated from High School.
Therefore I married an older
man that turned out to be gay and we went through a nasty divorce. My
children were reading by the time they were 3 and 4yrs old and had Bible
reading parts on the school before they turned 5yrs old. I made my own
reading books when they were between 2 and 3.
So even though my kids were still elementary school age, I was not qualified to homeschool them from the court's perspective.
my kids went back to public school they were so far ahead of the class
that the teachers used them as aids. They didn't learn a thing in public
Also my worldly parents were against me saying
that my children wouldn't be socialized properly, etc. So I had my own
family against me.
I used to be defensive because of what I went through but now of course my kids are adults, I have seen both sides of the coin.
have seen really good parents teach their children and I have seen ones
just leave it up to the child to finish their books and of course the
child doesn't finish the required curriculum. But that happens in public
school too and really each time it comes down to the parents
I think the parent that is involved with
their children are most likely to be on the defensive because they are
putting in the time, energy and mental preparation that it takes and
they see the results compared to their children's peers.
