Whilst I did look into ACE and the "paces" that they use and decided it wasn't for us.. I don't like this article for a totally different reason. This article seems to just create fear regarding homeschooling and THAT I don't like. You can NOT group all home schoolers into the same boat... It can be done many, many ways.
My husband and I have a 4.5 year old son with Aspergers, he is due to start prep next year and both my husband and I feel it is best for him if we main****** him and give him the chance to succeed alongside other kids his age at school. IF however school doesn't work out we both agreed a long time ago that we would homeschool him in a heartbeat!

And btw as far as I'm concerned there is no difference between teaching Loch Ness as fact and evolution as fact. No one will EVER know where the earth came from so teaching evolution as fact is just as bad in my eyes.

I'm not really suprised... As a school teacher, I've had my share of homeschooled kids enter my class/ school when the parents have decided that they've had enough, so I will admit that I am very biased in this area based on my bad experience, and I'm sure its not reflective of homeschoolers as a whole. But I did have a mum who taught her dd that mermaids are real - so no, it's not just Christians who do it! I've also experienced.completely illiterate 13 year olds, who can't read at a 5year old level because the mum didn't know how to.teach them to read, and what is an acceptable standard.

Ok - first off can I clear up this thread wasn't a dig at homeschooling at all, it was the fact that in a TEXT BOOK - it says the loch ness monster is a Plesiosaur!! A dinosaur that went extinct millions of years ago
This is Creationist non sense!!
..I don't know how anyone can defend it being suppled as educational material.
and secondly - if someone tried to use the Theory of Evolution to attempt to explain where the Earth came from - they wouldn't get very far ...because that's not what Evolution is.

I cringed when I saw the article on news.com.au this morning. Makes us Christians look like twits (as if we don't already )
