Biography:
Married 25yrs. Three children (2bio, 1 legal custody) United States Marine and Service Dog Handler. Tolerant Atheist.
Have had the unfortunate experience to be witness to the graft and corruption of public school at every level of government. Our family spent decades consumed in the belief that it was our duty to take a stand against corruption in the public educational system using proper channels. We further believed there were agencies setup to assist families being railroaded by public education. We were wrong. Every agency that stepped up was paid off, disbanded, or taken over by the DOE. This does not even factor in the agencies that were in on the take. Some agencies even provided misinformation to our family to provide time for corrupt school districts to cover their tracks of illegal conduct. Anyone else been a victim of the three prong school approach? Avoidance, Denial, Intimidation? Home schooling is the only way to ensure our children receive an optimal education.
