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.

I would consider starting a business that lends money to students for school tho.

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.

No - education is every parent's job.

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

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!
