Were your children once enrolled in the public school system or a voucher-accepting school? When you read about the School to Prison Pipeline, did you realize your child’s school pushed your child into homeschooling?
The School to Prison Pipeline testimony highlighted a problem IAHE and IAHE Action had suspected for many years. Testimony revealed some principals have engaged in coercing parents into homeschooling their children due to disciplinary, medical, special needs, or academic issues. Unfortunately, these recommendations are not always offered to improve the child’s situation, but to protect the school’s state A-F rating and the graduation rate.
If you feel you were pushed out by your child’s former school, but have found success homeschooling, we need to hear your story.
