    **** YOU!!I don't go round criticising the work of farmers or cage fighters, why should they be able to criticise the work I do? Because of the children???? I know what's best for your children. I've got a certificate in it. The only people who know what's better for your children than their teachers are the government. Listen to the experts.

    Tutors, ************. The internet. Books. Group study with the other homeschool parent who used to be a science teacher. Step outside of the matrix for a second. Think outside the box. Problem solve. It's not that hard.

    IIRC, the Christian argument goes something like this:

    If humans are merely animals, subject to evolution like every other organism, and the product of common descent, then we
    - were not created as separate, special creatures by God
    - would not have souls, just like all the other animals
    - therefore cannot be saved by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ
    - therefore have to choose that either evolution is correct, or their religion is.

    I would also note that the two areas of study that cause the most Christian backlash are also the two that impact their religion the most: evolution, and cosmology (with abiogenesis running a close third).

    One of the funniest things about religion is that, even if there were some type of god, most religious people would still be fucked when it was time to go meet their maker.

    How many religions are there preaching different requirements to reach their version of Heaven? A bunch. And even if there were a god, all those religious groups would be wrong except for one. Hell, they could ALL be wrong - even if their were a god.

    I looked around for private schools. I had a hard time finding one that would satisfy me. Lots of them are religious schools, which is a no-go for me. Some of them have really oddball ideas about how education should be administered - like the ones where they just let the kids do whatever the **** they want whenever the **** they want to do it.

    Then there are a handful of really good secular private schools and they cost way more than my house payment to send two kids there. Or they're far away. So that's my summary of the private school situation in my area.

    Secular private schools are prohibitively expensive in the NYC area (20k+/year). Catholic schools are really the only affordable alternative (most are b/w 5k-10k). There are also a variety of scholarship public high schools in NYC that are free and very good (Bronx Science, Stuyvesant etc), but competition for slots is high. Much higher than their catholic counterparts.

    I live in the burbs where the elementary schools are decent. For what I pay in taxes, they better fucking be. The high schools are **** though. My kids are young so they're in public elementary but there's no way I'd send them to public HS. Even the shitty catholic schools on Long Island are better than my local public high school.

    In an ideal world I'd love to home school my kids. My curriculum would consist of nothing but math/science/BJJ. Aliveness and objective reality.
