The teachers today are molding the future. The children are more and more being raised by the schools. If the teachers are good and engaging the students will thrive and do well all their lives. If the teachers are bored and poorly trained they will negatively impact the students for many years forward. We as a society have not promoted teachers as an important component of a child’s life. Home schooled children seem to have a leg up in many ways. If the parent is a good teacher they can give the individual attention the students need to succeed. Home for Life is not the goal for the home schooled child.
