NOT a Republican Foot Soldier

I really expected better from Reuters, then this hatchet job portraying stereotypical homeschoolers.

Homeschoolers are a diverse group just like public school parents are. Some of us are even DEMOCRATS or Independents. By no means are we all Republican Foot Soldiers. In fact my husband is running for office as a Democrat.

Another myth is that homeschoolers are all Christians or that we all teach Creationism. Nothing could be further from the truth . There are Pagan, Atheist, Agnostic, Jewish, and  Buddhist Homeschoolers just to name a few, and many homeschoolers believe and teach EVOLUTION.

And contrary to how the Reuters article portrays us their are many PRO-CHOICE homeschoolers that are supportive of both boys and girls being given mandatory vaccinations  to prevent the spread of HPV, a sexually transmitted disease.

I vary between being frustrated and amused at the stereotypes of homeschoolers. One of the things that I most enjoy about my local homeschool community is the diversity, and the support of each other, even when we have radically different views and styles.
