Would you donate money to pay for the education of other people's children if the government no longer provided the service?
Yes, because I don't want to live in a country full of idiots... Well, anymore idiots.
Yes, because I don't like living in a country with a bunch of stupid people.
I would consider starting a business that lends money to students for school tho.
Sure. It's the right thing to do
I would donate a little.
Yes. It's not a donation for the education of other people's children; it's what we do together to educate our future citizenry. It was happening here before we were ever a country and I don't want it to stop.
I probably would.
No - education is every parent's job.
Few parents can provide a full and comprehensive high school education.
That's why we have co-ops. I'm not a whiz at science or advanced math, but two of our moms were. I taught HS English, Poetry, JH Fiction, Speech, Drama, and Music Appreciation, and directed a Homeschool Choir for two years, doing concerts & musicals.
We also had athletic teams. My daughter played homeschool volleyball for 6 years, earning a varsity letter jacket. My son, likewise, played basketball. I assure you, similar coöperative education is going on between homeschoolers all across America.
And academics? When My kids took the ITBS, they were both about five grade levels above the norms. Their SATs were very high, and my daughter graduated Magna cum Laude with a BS in Radiologic Tech and now teaches at the Jr. College where she
got her AS degree. My son got an AA in Music Summa cum Laude and is now pursuing a BFA in Acting at a state university. We know of other homeschooled kids who went to West Point and the Naval Academy. And not all their parents had my credentials, or
Even Baccalaureate degrees. With good curricula and help from other parents, anybody can succeed.
Not in the financial state I'm currently in, but when I have the means, I shall!
