Dumbing down yes. Local schools in the mid-west are sadly deficient in many areas, notably history, penmanship/handwriting, spelling, phonics, but by golly elementary school kids get Spanish and global warming shoved down their throats, like it or not. Gotta have priorities. When I explained the myriad of egregious faults with Obama care (management of risk anyone?), and why we needed to enforce immigration laws, they said “they didn’t tell us that at school.” Of course not. Indoctrinate them early and they’ll be sheep when they reach voting age, its the liberal way. My siblings home school, they have a lot of say on curriculum. Meaningful field trips, and home school groups so there is ample opportunity for socialization, opportunity to compete in forensics, speech, debate, sports, etc. in high school. You get out of it what you put into it, so if you go “all in” your kids will definitely benefit. My 2 cents anyway, your mileage may vary.
