All the work done in printing is artistic talent, and billing is none other then basic math. I do not believe she was able to teach past 5th grade...especially when her own Aunt said she did a great job under those circumstances, I see no books on pictures, or any inference to any books. There is a boy in my building who is home schooled....He went to Paris for a year with family (not to school, and he does have very strange parents, Mom is a JW and Dad is catholic; they fight like cats and dogs, and are nasty in public - how good their religion did for them ) BUT...Because the boy is home schooled he just skipped the year that he was away, WHY I m not sure... I am sure his Mom said to me...8th grade is no big deal we are just going to proceed with 9th grade. I was on the bus with the kid yesterday and he told me his Mothers brother took the tests for him so that he will be able to proceed. YAP with home schooling it is a very different ball game. NOP I am not closed minded at all...but I too have taught, and there are just some fibs I will not were my rose glasses for. It is however always OK with me for everyone to believe whatever they like.
