Quoting SAFFY™:" I wouldn't feel comfortable teaching without one. Elementary education is my post-transfer intended major."
I think once you are in a teaching program (like you and I) you realize just how much there is to know to be a teacher that people may not otherwise realize. My teaching program is extremely demanding and difficult. Like I personally won't have any education in elementary education, so I wouldn't know how to teach my young child using the most effective methods. I do think homeschooling can be a positive thing, but the parents have got to know what they are doing. If anything, I want to put my daughter in more of a non-traditional charter school personally.
