    I was homeschooled with ACE and thought it was pretty good TBH I don't see why it's a big deal. Homeschooling parents have a choice of what materials they use. If they don't like them, use something else- simple. No one else's kids are being exposed to the materials so why should it bother anyone else?

    Excuse my total ignorance. There are a variety of homeschooling businesses, and you can choose which system you use? And ACE is one of them?
    Yes I will be homeschooling

    Basically now days homeschooling is legal and there are lots of options - several puchased curriculums (including ACE), distance ed, you can write or put together your own curriculum, use elements of Steiner or montessori or unschool. My parents chose ACE at the time because it didn't take a lot of prep for them (I could more or less follow everything myself), was relatively flexible and I was legally enrolled somewhere, which they wanted at the time. It had pluses from my point of view but I certainly won't be using it for my kids

    Am very excited about homeschooling my kids - perhaps without Nessie's factual existence

    Lol Nessie IS real!

    To be honest, it's one of the least outrageous beliefs I've heard from extremist Christians.

    So you can legally unschool your kids?

    Oh, 'The loch ness monster' just rolls off the tongue so mauch easier than, 'creature that some think went extinct millions of years ago'.

    Have you seen her?

    I really WANT to believe she's out there.. It's a subject that really fascinates me.

    would you be saying the same if you came across a text book that taught, 4+4=21?

    Its an extreme christian creation theory. Must say, I've seen more photos of Nessie than I have of god! Seriously though, it's ridiculous!

    Whats it matter? No different to the parents who tell their kids no ones walked on the moon yet.

    It's not them teaching the kids 4x4=130.
