While homeschoolers will continue to live their lives according to their beliefs and convictions, public perception of homeschooling can make life easy or much harder.
With that in mind, NBC’s Housewives series has written homeschooling into their script. From this week’s online summary:
Reading, writing and respect: When Juanita lets a swear word fly in her school play, Gaby tells the principal off for criticizing her parenting. That gets Juanita kicked out of school and means Gaby has to homeschool her. She’s unqualified and uninterested, and the mother-daughter power struggles that follow only wreak more havoc on their already troubled relationship.
It will be interesting to watch as the writers and directors present their take on homeschooling.
Maybe we will be surprised, or maybe not:
Quote of the week:”We just finished gym class, now it’s time to read.” –Gaby to Juanita
“Ironing isn’t gym class!” — Juanita
So, how seriously should we take ourselves?
