February 11, 2011A Difference Between Home Schooled and Public Schooled Kids
My brother is a Boy Scout leader here in Bellingham, WA. He was at a meeting with 3rd graders, most of which are home schooled, and a few parents.
The theme of the day was when to call 911. Here is how the conversation went:
David: Why do people call 911?
Answer from children: For an emergency.
David: What is an example of an emergency?
Child A: If someone is running around inside your house naked and you don't know them.
David: Ok, that could be an emergency. Any other examples?
Child B: When you get stoned.
Parents looked surprised.
David: Could you tell us more about what you mean?
Child: Like in the Bible, if people throw rocks at me. I will call 911.
One of the dads in the group said, "And that's the difference between a home schooled and a public schooled kid."
I thought it was very amusing, and thought you might too.
