Homeschooling gives us people like Tim Tebow, who is soon to be (if not already) a household icon. The kid is a twat. He should be reason enough to not only heavily, I mean heavily, monitor homeschooling, but also legalize, worldwide, abortion.

Were you this angry as a child?
Toughen up champ. I'm not angry, you're just soft.
What kind of comment is that about Tim Teabow?
What do you care? It was meant to imply that he is a dumbass creationist because of his homeschooling.
I could just as easily say that the public school system produces the likes of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, and yes, the worldwide abortion comment would apply in this case also.
but you see, my Tim Tebow reference was meant as a reference to his ignorance because he was taught religion, instead of school. I'm sorry if your avereage homeschooler is a fundy evangelical creo. He fits the stereotype perfectly.
but you have a serious anger problem towards anything Christianity
It only appears as being angry because i am attacking people of your ilk. you don't like it so you accuse me of being "angry" so as to play some sort of pity card. "big mean atheist (I'm surprisingly agnostic, actually) points out dumb things christians do. He's such a meanie!".
while you completely turn a blind eye to anything that a secularist might do.
I have requested, on more than one occasion, for any one of you to point out an event that you feel is representative of secularism/atheism that equals in nature the things I post. For example: show me someone who kills people IN THE NAME OF ATHEISM. I will galdly chastise them as well.
My gripe with christians when they do this sort of thing in the name of YHWH is that you people are the ones who claim to have moral authority. You people are the ones saying that without god, there can be no morals. So yea, I do have a gripe with religion, christianity in particular as it is the main religion I have to face. So sorry if I call you all on your bluff.
Also, you make ridiculous blanket statements such as this one and the one not too long ago about how nobody has ever killed in any other name but the name of God.
Show me where I said exactly that. I never once said any such thing. Stop lying.
did Harris and Klebold kill in the name of God??? I doubt it.
Red herring much?

Any response I give will be ammo for those who are currently accusing me of hating anything christianity. So I will say that Time Tebow WAS homeschooled, and in my opinion he is a twat because his parents gave him crap education: religion instead of knowledge. The kid is dumb as a box of rocks. If he weren't built like a brick shit-house, he'd bagging groceries or working fast food. [/end opinion]

In general, the child/teacher ratio is too high. Kids can easily get left out/ignored. My kids' school has about 30 kids per class, and that's one teacher and an assistant.

And all of this is basically public school, paid for (at least in part, or sometimes completely, depending on income of the parents) by the government. Also, everyone on a MBO, HBO or WO education gets a "study finance" of about 100 euros when living at home with their parents, and about 450 euros (I believe) when living on their own, every month.
That, IMO, is a huge difference, almost deal breaker, between most of Europe and America. When I was in Germany, I found they also get free "college" (I put it in quotes because to them, they are just going to school=normal, but to us yanks, it's college) for "free" or at least part of the public system. Here? We are lucky if we get college. If your parents were wealthy enough to have saved up for it or pay outright, sure. Otherwise you could incur massive debt in student loans that you likely have for the rest of your life. Maybe you are a football star and get a scholarship.
Or maybe you are a middle of the road student in a working class family who does ok in school but your parents aren't rich and you aren't an athlete. No further education for you.

First of all, no, they don't go to school for free if they pay taxes.
Hmm..so long as you pay taxes, you are qualified, right? That's remarkably different than here, innit?
Secondly, if everyone went to college and all got degrees, then what would separate the college grad from another college grad?
So sorry if I feel everyone would have access to higher education. you know, make the world smarter and all. I guess you only want a select few to hold all the knowledge, right? The elites?
If too many people get a college education, then college ceases to be anything more than an extended version of high school
Oh, so again, only the select few again. Screw everyone being overall smarter and having more knowledge.
Along with that comes incentives, like having 100% of your tuition payed by taxes while you're in and receive $300,000 after you complete your tour going towards any degree you want. You also receive an E-5 housing allowance so you don't have to work full time while you get your degree.
Really? when did this change? (I was in the army). You may want to look that up again and get your facts straight.
like having 100% of your tuition payed (sic)
This is true, yes.
receive $300,000 after you complete your tour going towards any degree you want.
You may want to re-investigate what the GI-Bill is, buddy. It's not just a 300k handout.
You also receive an E-5 housing allowance so you don't have to work full time while you get your degree.
LMAO. This is just plain absurd. Do you even know what an E-5 is?
I see again you are arguing just to argue. you got your fancy college edu-ma-cation through (I'm sure) none of the avenues you mentioned, yet you still want to play devils advocate just to do so. Right, it's so easy to get into college in the US. ROFL.

Tebow's pre-Wonderlic prayer request falls flat
Even his teammates/prospective teammates/locker room buddies don't want to hear his crap.
