There are over 1.3 Million students being homeschooled in the States. Last year during my maternity leave I taught a Science class to homeschoolers. When I asked one of the moms how homeschooling was going since she was new to it, she said "Great, now that I've combined Bible Studies and Physical Science." hmmm. I'm curious how that works, I guess it would be interesting to teach forces as they apply to David and Goliath.
Anyway, I'm not teaching in the coop this year, but I saw that the course that is replacing mine is called "Exploring Creation with Zoology: Land Animals of the Sixth Day"
Is anyone else worried about the quality of Science (if you can even call it that) they're teaching homeschoolers? I'm sure there are some parents who are giving their kids an excellent education at home, but I'm not sure how regulated all this really is and it's pretty scary. Has anyone else had similar experiences or know more about what they are required to teach these students? Don't the same standards apply?
