Ummm......I don't think I could home school my kids without hurting them.......

One county over from us you have the smallest county in TN with the Jack Daniel's Distillery in them there hills......They have a top notch public school system.  Jack Daniel's will fund anything educational wise as long as its helpful to the students.  They pay for any special resource teachers that may be needed.  Like the speech teacher for my youngest that I pay out of pocket for. 

Now my county.....we have an Air Force Base, Nissan, and a whole host of Nissan parts makers.  We pump in twice the money as Lynchburg to the school system, pay higher taxes all across the board......our education system sucks.  Oh had to have the biggest high school in the state.....built it only for half way thru they finished a bigger one elsewhere.  They paid lowest bidder, getting lowest quality work (4 years later, things already having to be redone), our state test scores dropped...We have 14 football coaches for a team that lost all but 4 games last year.  Our director of schools has created more bull positions for wifes of friends than any one around us.  Now they want to raise county taxes and pass a wheel tax for more money for schools.  But they don't fix issues that are important like the kids and learning.  They've mishandled the last $14 million we gave em....The state of TN ranks in the lowest for education.  But I will have to say this.  The middle school that my oldest is in has a really good group of teachers.  They come in before time and stay late to tutor anyone who needs help.  I get a daily email from the office with any updates.  And for the most part they have more of a fun attitude that keeps the kids interested and challenged.  And it is the middle school that the other one thinks is trash.  We have 2 middle schools, one rich folks end of the county, then our end where 80% of the families are on reduced lunches due to low income.  Yet we have the highest testing scores and the best sports teams.  We just don't have as nice of clothing....My oldest son likes going to school....

Dadchamp.....it sucks ass how one thing can screw it all up.  I just don't know what to tell you!
