Home-schooling to avoid vaccines

I just read this article on Parentdish.

Apparently some people are homeschooling just to exempt their kids from mandatory vaccinations. Personally I think vaccinations are important and disagree with those who choose not to. I really hope that isn't the only reason they are choosing homeschooling though.

There is talk about whether homeschoolers should be required to be vaccinated and honestly, I agree that they should. The point of mandatory vaccination is because the more people that don't vaccinate, the more likely the disease will come back. This is more important in a social setting like school but is important just in general too.

Homeschooling Break

Well we didn't do any homeschooling this week, well except for talking and reading books on the subject and going to playgroup. Our subject was supposed to be All About Me. I don't know how much homeschooling we'll do next week either as I'll be recovering from the surgery (see side bar.) So we'll just call this a homeschooling reprieve. If I can post next week I'll do some general homeschooling posts.
