I understand the point you are making, Muduh, and while I don't doubt 'A lot of home schoolers are actually college educated', I highly doubt that 'many are more qualified to teach their kids than the actual teachers are.' Students in high-schools receive instructions in each classes from different teachers who have degrees in their respective field that they are teaching in. The bio teacher has a bio degree, the English teacher has a English degree, the math teacher has a math degree etc. A single parent or even a couple cannot hope to have the combined experience in university and the knowledge of all of these teachers. The most they can do is probably a major and several minors in several interrelated fields. They could probably study ahead with books etc by themselves so that they can answer the kid's questions for subjects that they aren't familiar with, but the depth of their understanding and thus the quality of teaching is probably limited.Originally Posted by Muduh
As for Scot, he didn't really stand out this week, this week the spotlight was pretty much on Jeremy, Davis, and Melissa. Hopefully the editors will give him more airtime in the coming weeks so that we can get to know him better.
