Although Judy promotes home schooling, and apparently works for a home schooling organization (the definition of "work" being open to interpretation), please do not identify her as a home schooling parent, or a person who favors, encourages or furthers home schooling. Judy is, for all intents and purposes, not connected in any way to home schooling such that she should be identified by her promotion of it.

Just move on and don't mention it at all, okay? It apparently makes her uncomfortable.

Sigh - wmrourke - wmrourke.. you honestly don't get it do you?

I never said I was NOT connected to homeschooling. In fact, I said I was proud to have homeschooled my children. The fact is that I technically am not homeschooling my daughter (or any other children for that matter) at this time. But hell yeah, I am a homeschool and parental rights advocate, and proud of it.

I am not uncomfortable when people mention my homeschooling except when they intend to use it a some sort of sensational label in a context that has no bearing on my educational choices at all. Case in point Green's article (or was that really yours "wmrourke"? hmmm... )

You honestly haven't a clue as to what I do and don't do... but you sure like to make snide remarks about it. It's a shame that you feel a need to do that.

For you to be beating this dead horse is indicative of the fact that you honestly have some sort of issue going on here and you obviously have some sort of need to prove a point of some kind. I suggest that you get over it. I have.
