Asking a New Question

This is a great article by a homeschool mom responding to the Montgomery School District Sex Ed video for 10th graders.
Being a home educator and mother of two, I have often been asked the question: "Why do you homeschool?" But I've come to the conclusion that the question most begging to be asked is: "Why do you public school?" (snip)

Could it be that we as parents have grown so lazy in teaching our own children moral standards that we actually desire that the public schools do our job for us? And are we so naïve as to think that if abstinence education is included as part of the sordid "do-it" sex ed, that our children will do the right thing?

Read the whole article.
