From the inside looking out


     The following item appeared recently on a homeschooling list to which I subscribe. “I am a public school teacher (for right now). My youngest son, 16, has just been diagnosed with schizophrenia. I am having a hard time dealing with that. We had a pep rally today. I got very upset seeing the band (he was in the band last year) and knowing that he can't handle things like that like a normal kid can. Then, to top it all off, the dance group went through a couple of dances that were very sexually suggestive. They were mostly 8th grade girls, but they 'performed' mostly in front of the 6th grade, to a section that was mostly boys. I really was morally offended. I stood there wondering what I was doing in a place like that, where I felt immoral things were happening. I guess I said all that to say, I think I need to be 'homeschooled.' I can't take any more of this. I just want out. I want to get out of my contract so badly, but am afraid of financial repercussions. I just have to find a way.” I thought that we all might be benefitted from knowing how someone inside the teaching profession sees things.
