I recently ran into someone who asked what Pre-School my daughter went to. When I explained to said person, "I have my daughter in home school for right now. She is on the Double Duty Program," I got the biggest dirty look. You would think that I had just offended the woman. Truthfully, I am used to that reaction, though I wish people asked why and not grimace at me. So without further adieu, I give you my top 5 reasons to home school.
Looking at the budget of the 2017 School Year, I came across something interesting. Did you know that 2017's budget is $69.4 billion dollars in discresionary funding, and $139.7 billion in mandatory funding for the US Department of Education. That is up $1.3 billion over last year, and a total of $209.1 billion. Does this make sense to you? Where does all the money go for this budget?
