What High School Graduation Means in 2017 Thanks to Liberals

Flashback from Robert Gehl:

With public schools in complete disarray, it’s probably not surprising that homeschooled kids would do better on standardized testing than the rest of the children – but who knew it was by this much!

New findings show that in critical reading and writing, homeschooled kids trounce children educated in public schools.

The study analyzed the SAT scores from both groups of kids. The average critical reading SAT scores for brick-and-mortar-educated kids was 497, but the homeschooled kids were 70 points higher, at 567, the Foundation for Economic Education is reporting.

There were similar results in the writing portion of the test. The traditional students scored an average of 487 on that section, but homeschooled kids got a 535 – 48 points higher.

They outperformed in the mathematics section too, but only by eight points.

This flies in the face of the leftist media narrative – that homeschooled kids are dumber and ill-prepared for the real world. But public schools by and large are a disaster – not focusing on the basics and instead trying to indoctrinate our children with concepts like “white privilege” and “Common Core math.”
