Only "Actual Teachers" Should Read This!

A virtual school had an advertisement with a parent testimonial stating:

"We have found the K12 curriculum to be far above anything we could have done on our own, plus we have the added advantage of an actual teacher for help"

Don't be fooled! Homeschooling parents ARE actual teachers - the best possible teachers for their children.

That same virtual school had another advertisement that said:

"Student/student interaction is also actively encouraged, so (this virtual school's) students are always well-educated and well-socialized."

In my opinion, any group that worries about children being "well-socialized" are NOT homeschooling groups. It's one of those "ah ha" statements that really indicates a lot about a group. Any time someone tells you that you need a classroom experience to be "well-socialized" you can confidently stand your ground. Be polite, but firm, and explain that your homeschooled children ARE well-socialized, and they didn't need a classroom environment to get that way. Friends and family, people of all ages, and the normal comings and goings of your life provide all you need to "socialize" your children.

Remember: you ARE an "actual teacher!"

Remember: you are providing your children with all the social skills they need to shine in this world.

Hi Carol,
I can't point to it because I saw the ad 2 years ago (this is a blog post from 2008) and because I was just clicking on links at the time, following rabbit trails.

Can you point me to where this ad was? I purchase some curriculum from K12 as a homechooler and I would REALLY like to call them to task for making such a statement! They KNOW BETTER!

Is an "actual" teacher the opposite of an imaginary teacher?

Oh, my sides hurt from laughing. How lucky they must feel to have an "actual" teacher.
