    I'd struggle to teach my kids anything as fact. Rather - this is the best theory we have right now.

    Hmmm. There is a lot more evidence to support evolution than there is that Nessie is a- real and b- a plesiosaur. Evolution is on going and still happening. We can see it all around us.

    Mermaids are real! They were in the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

    Oh wow, that is terrible. Is it true? They are teaching that imaginary creatures exist to disprove evolution? So homeschooling curriculums aren't regulated then? To ensure...you know kids are learning facts... not fiction.

    Can you imagine meeting someone who genuinely believes that nessie exists? "Well, thats what I was taught at school.."

    *facepalm*

    The ACE curriculum is American. When I did it you also learned full American spelling, history was almost entirely about missionaries and most grammatical structures in English were 100% religious (no general 'Sally went to the store' there, more 'If I don't go to church I will suffer in hell'). But if a parent is doing their job they raise young people with the ability to question and investigate. I've heard of kids learning ridiculous things from conventional schooling, homeschooling and other forms of authority. Many could argue against creationism being taught as fact more than poor old Nessie, this is just something that came to media attention.

    The ACE curriculum is strong in a lot of ways, and weak in others. Only a small number of Australian homeschoolers use it anyway to my knowledge.
