PHAT Mommy, homeschooling mom, on BlogTalkRadio

She will be a guest on BlogTalkRadio this Tuesday night (December 5th) to discuss homeschooling. The show description is as follows:

PHAT Mommy's segment will begin around 10:30 p.m. Her 'opposition' is Joanne from PunditMom, who will be speaking in favor of private schooling.

The web site to listen is here: BlogTalkRadio.

PHAT Mommy would love it if you could call in between 10:30 and 11:00 p.m. to support her and homeschooling by posing thoughtful questions to PunditMom.

Even if you can't call in it would be great for you to listen. If you can't listen on Tuesday night, you can listen to it at a later time.

It all depends on how bedtime goes for me. If things go well (things are getting interesting in 'The Secret Garden' bedtime story!) I will definitely listen in. I hope that you can, too!

No, despite all the posts on the various homeschooling blogs, I am not speaking in favor of private school. I will be talking about how and why we chose private school for our daughter. Everybody has an important choice to make when it comes to their children's education and there are many good choices.

Well thank you for the information, PunditMom. It was not presented the way that you describe and I appreciate the clarification.

Homeschooling or private school are the only viable options for parents in Philadelphia. In this most important decision, parents are left with little choice in placing their children in a education environment that best suits their needs.

Philadelphia is failing its future.

Looks like I missed out. Oh well, it was on past MY bedtime anyway.

The Secret Garden is my favorite book from my childhood!

You are correct Skye. It is not only the city of Philadelphia that is experiencing the problem of horrifying public school conditions though. PA does have a strong Charter school law though and that is another viable option. Most of the good ones have waiting lists and there are some bad charters out there, too. Buyer beware!

I missed it too, tshsmom. I haven't had the chance to check it out since then either. The girls are loving The Secret Garden - we couldn't put it down!

I hope so too, LMC. It seems to have been mis-represented by the homeschool mom, judging by punditmom's comment above.
