New program, possible name change for Iowa Street School, 3 January 2008, Village News Network, Fallbrook, California
In March, parents of home-schooled students in San Diego, Riverside and Orange counties will be able to enroll their K-8 children in a new Fallbrook Union Elementary School District (FUESD) alternative core program in language arts, math, science and social studies.
Now why would a program be restricted to homeschooled kids? If public school kids wanted to do public-school-at-home, couldn’t they switch? Ditto for privately-schooled kids?
The idea that ‘homeschoolers’ constitute a separate … division? caste? cohort? … of children is fictitious. Kids is kids.
