Lyn Reviews Marta Perry’s The Rescued — 4 Comments

  1. Today, there are so many choices for parents, and I’m sure it is a tough decision! I’ve taught 3rd grade for 32 years in rural North Carolina. There is public school, Charter School, private school, and home school in my area. I think most parents start getting more concerned about their kids’ “social playground” right before the middle school age. Anyway, that’s what we experience in my area. Parents want to control the peer situation and resort to more controlled settings. Sometimes I think it’s for the best educational setting, and other times it’s because of peer pressure and what the kids might encounter.

  2. Many parents who are rightfully and deeply concerned about gun violence, ostracism, bullying, promiscuity and drugs are choosing to educate their children at home. I can only imagine that the numbers of parents home schooling will rise with each school shooting that occurs in our country. It’s sad that our country has come to this.


  3. More parents are going toward home schooling and I can understand why! The kids get a better education and kept away from drugs, bullying and anything else that might occur. And the parents can teach their kids the difference from right and wrong.

  4. Well, with the violence that can be found in schools these days, its really no wonder. And then there’s the bullying, drugs and other concerns, I can certainly understand why parent’s would consider different ways of schooling for their children.
