Colleges have come to recognize that homeschooled kids are typically far better than public school and want the homeschoolers. We do hard core research here on our farm all the time including genetics, mathematics, physics, engineering, biology and a lot more. Go for it.

For me, Mocking and judging happen well enough outside our home (and especially in public schools) which is one of our many reasons for choosing the route of homeschooling. I hope that's not the case here, since I really like finding new sources for tools and learning resources, as well as sharing the many i find to be useful.

There is no place here for mocking, judging, making sweeping statements about 'truth' or 'facts', or belittling anyone else's belief systems. This is not the right forum for discussing politics or religion, but I'll do whatever I can to ensure that this a safe place for discussing homeschooling.
