This is my biggest hub yet. Please take a look and let me know if I'm working in the right direction. Thank you.

All in all I thought it was a pretty well constructed good hub. I disagree on a few points, but I don't think that necessarily takes away from any value as a hub.
I am glad you brought up the whole issue about having the aptitude to teach. I knew more than my parents when I was in the 7th grade, so them trying to home school me would have been a joke.
The part about the Ivy league and homeschoolers could be little misleading...I'm not sure...but the examples I have seen in the past have been parents with Phd educations thinking "outside the box", not the average homeschooler parent that might have a degree in accounting but never took science in college beyond "rocks for jocks".
The big success stories I have seen in terms of homeschoolers going to Ivy league schools have always involved science prodigies, but I don't know how it really works.
Thank you for the feedback.
I didn't see any of the issues with the Ivy league applications that mention in any of the articles I read, but that doesn't mean you're not correct. I'll need to do some more research on that.
Yeah, I don't know much about it, but the few examples I have seen it has been like the father had a PhD in physics and the children built their own observatory...that sort of thing...
The nagging problem I have with home schooling is....I am smarter than 98% of the population or so...and to me it looks like a pretty tough job...not something I want to spend 8 hours a day doing...Is some guy that barely finished college really qualified to do this?...Just look at some of the hubs that are written here...are these people qualified to teach?...anything?...

Every so often you put a huge amount of effort in to a Hub, and no matter what you do, it just never takes off.For example, I wrote a Discworld Hub recently, it was never really intended to make much, but I love the...

I was involved in a forum discussing whether teachers should be held accountable for a students success. I started thinking about the possibilities of home schooling, but I don't have any information on the subject and...

Ive made my biggest effort in writing this and know that there is still a bit of editing and moving around of pictures and adding credits and links to go, yet I would like someone elses opinion .. please be gentle with...
