to be fair, i was homeschooled for quite a while and was behind everyone else as far as social skills went

but this was more than 10 years ago and I'd rather not have society make my kid mentally ill via public "education" when I can do it with my own genes just fine

I know a lot of homeschool kids, and they're all pretty well adjusted because they engage in social stuff outside of school work - church, sports, music, outdoors stuff, jobs, etc. If anything, the homeschooled kids I know are better adjusted because they're exposed to society outside of the fucked up artificial setting that is a classroom. They learn to interact with people in the real world. The private and public school kids I know are all neurotic and think that classroom society is the same as the real world.

So true-especially with all the trash public schools are trying to indoctrinate kids with today

A big thing now is learning pods. Where you have a group of kids all being homeschooled together. Its not really homeschooling but alternative to public schools. I don't know too much about it to be honest but it sounds like a decent idea.

A lot of the homeschooling families I know participate in home school coops, where there are large group events such as field trips as well as weekly classroom sessions for labs and the like, as well as group funding for stuff like private tutors and crowd sourced curriculum review. The vast majority is self guided home study, but there is lot of middle ground between 40 hours a week in a public classroom and none.

Extracurriculars too. When I was in high school, a homeschool group rented our school's auditorium and put on a great production of Titanic: The Musical. Their singing and acting was great, and they had a set that tilted as time went on and the Titanic sank further.

that's really interesting, it'll theoretically teach kids the value of developing familiar relationships with others, i like it

Plus it allows things solo homeschooling might not. In example, showcasing most chemistry may be out of the price range of some families, but if they pool resources for a chemistry set, it can either be passed amongst, or a group lesson.

The new schools and a great idea. Should wipe the public school slate clean and start over with this. Government should have no say in kids education

ya gotta take the kiddos out and expose them to others in various activities.

Lots of options for this. My favorite has always been to put them in some kind of dedicated music class. Just because you're home schooling doesn't mean you can't employ private classes as extracurriculars.

I bet if some parents did that, they'd be all "Little Timmy isn't acting up at home as much as he used to. Maybe if I keep taking them outside, they won't need to take pills to calm down anymore!"

Public schooling is baby jail for babies. The social dynamics are the same (racial tensions, dominance culture) and if you're "gifted" enough to "graduate" you go to actual jail for grown-ups, sometimes even before legal adulthood.

Homeschool and have your kid start their own business. They will never wholly exist in the matrix.

My nieces and nephews are home schooled they have homeschool groups so that helps with social kids. Academically way ahead than I was at their age

The thing about government schools is so much wasted time. Kids are there for eight or so hours but maybe get two hours of work (preparing them for corporate jobs).

Public schools teach at the rate of the dumbest kid in the classroom. This leaves the smart kids bored most of the time.

Which often causes them to act up, because they are kids, which gets them sent to a counselor who will just see "hyperactive boy!" and slap that fat ADHD diagnosis on them and hook them on drugs that will zombify them.

Isn't "education" working out so well for people?!?!

You joke, but the public school system was purpose-built to condition kids to working in factories. Even down to the 45 minute classes and the sound of the old school bells, which are built to mimic factory bells.

Nowadays, public schooling doesn't prepare you for any job. Not even Taco Bell.

The Progressives built the system so that if you said "This feels like High School" they would assume you meant it felt like a factory. Now it means that it feels like something so fundamentally broken that it's like a shitty prison.

If were being honest, most intelligent kids homeschool themselves if their parents get them the resources like books. Public school has been drowning in trying to dumb teaching to the lowest denominator.

Anyone I know who isn't a piece of shit has spent most of their adult lives fixing themselves from the damaged person that came out of high school.

It's so great to be "normal".

All in all, the "weird" homeschooled kids I've met were the ones with the whack-job cult-mentality parents who refused to let them socialize with others in their peer group, because their kid might get opposing viewpoints from what the parents want to install into the kids' brains. The ones that were allowed to socialize outside of the home, through group hobbies or other means, actually learned how to interact and turned out relatively well-adjusted.

Is there like a site for memes like this? It's the kind of thing Fagit would have had before it turned into Fagit.

4chan?

But no I don't think there's an image board with discussions and voting that doesn't delete these things but there's free image hosts that don't care. (and Stonetoss has his own website)

Just go to stonetoss own site, and when other comics are posted, look up the artist’s work

Wait i just went through several of his comics and I'm finding one of these in each one. Since when is that a thing?

I have the same question. I don’t get the point of amogus

Sir_Zorba 2 points ago +2 / -0

Earliest one I saw was in the "Lethal Force" comic, so April. That was after "The Imposter" in Feb. which got amogus memes banned on the antifastonetoss reddit.
