School District Targets Homeschooled Students for Money

Post by Jernice on Thu Jun 23, 2011 10:11 pm

The Pickerington Local School District plans to open a new "community school" in August to educate currently home-schooled students, as well as help at-risk students get on track toward graduation.

The school, which would be sponsored and overseen by the district, would seek to bring area students who are now being home-schooled back into the district.

It also would aim to help students who've fallen behind academically so they can graduate.

"We're targeting kids currently in our two high schools who are at risk of not graduating," said Bob Blackburn, PLSD director of special education. "We're looking at kids that are credit-deficient who are three or more classes behind their peers.

"We're also looking at kids with chronic truancy or who have behavioral issues, as well as kids living in the district who are attending other community schools or are being home-schooled," he said.

Quote from HSLDA


"By mentioning homeschoolers in this list of targets, Mr. Blackburn uses a stereotype that some government education bureaucrats have about homeschool students—that they are misfits. Of course, this notion couldn’t be further from the truth. Research and real world experience show that homeschool children thrive academically and socially."

I'm just shaking my head at how they are placing homeschoolers in the same category as students with behavior problems and those who are at risk of not graduating. They still don't have a clue.
