This worries, angers, frustrates me.
I was homeschooled the majority of my life. When I was 15 I went to public school for one year to see how it was. I made solid A's and was bored out of my mind. I left, did 6 months of prep work and started working on an associates degree in computer science. I held a 4.0 until my last two semesters. I graduated with a 3.3 gpa at 19. I am an average student who suffers from motivation issues. I think I did fine. I now have comfortable job with banking software.
My mother was not teacher certified, and did not have -any- degree.
I plan on homeschooling my daughter. This ruling sounds like BS to me and when I think about it I am infuriated.
Just needed to get that off my chest.
