I got a letter from Davis County Education. My heart begins thumping. I open the letter and read: Dear Home School Parent, During the 2014 General Session of the Legislative Counsel Amendments were made to the Home School. A bill was passed that modifies the procedures for excusing students from the public school attendance.
MY HEART STOPS! Tears well up in my eyes! I am screaming inside, no! No! No! I read on....and burst into a torrent of tears, yes the floodgates open. I thought they were taking away my right to teach my child. I thought: No more laughing during language lessons, no more rolling of the eyes when I have Raven do her times tables. No more confusion with grammar. No more cool scientific experiments. No more art. No more reading strange fairy-tales and asking: What in the world did that mean? No more.
It is rare when I praise the government bodies, but today I want to thank Davis County Legislative body. I want to thank Utah Lawmakers! (now I know that a lot of people are fighting to get married, and I am sorry that you have not won your battle yet) But today...Today I am grateful!!! I love teaching my child! I love how our "school" time has brought us closer and I love watching her blossom like a rose! Thank-you!!!!!! Thank-you!!! Thank-you!!!! They made home-school easier by allowing for only one notarized affidavit instead of one every year. And to the public who worries about home-school children...You don't need to worry. Raven is excelling in Reading, Math, Science, Technology, History, Language Arts, Art, Physical Education...and even a foreign Language. Thank you for allowing me to continue this wonderful journey of home-schooling. I can't imagine it any other way. Today I feel that the government represented the people who voted them in.
Shit I want to Post
