Homeschooled kids will have huge advantage

  • I can't imagine any homeschoolers having the problems described here.

    This is a quote from a woman who runs a boutique public relations agency.  It was from an article on "what annoys your boss":


    "Where do I start? I own a boutique public relations agency, and the most irritating thing my employees do is they do not check their work. I've told them innumerable times how to compose successful e-mails to clients and press, and each time they write an e-mail it's like the first time all over again. Spelling mistakes, grammatical mistakes, missing info -- even though they've seen me craft identical e-mails dozens of times, could simply use spell check, and do a quick re-read to find and fix their errors. It's beyond irritating, especially because it's so preventable. It's gotten to the point that I have to write every e-mail for them before they can send it -- even when it's as simple as 'Hi there, I just wanted to check in to make sure you received the package we sent you last week' -- otherwise it will be filled with errors."

  • Just remember -- those sullen, underachieving, gadget-addicted, video game playing, "t3xt sp34k"-using teenagers are going to BE the workforce at some point -- and your homeschooled children will be their competition.

    Imagine your TV-deprived, attention span-having, paragraph-of-coherent-prose-writing, used-to-doing-real-work child applying for a job.

    It won't even be a fight. It will be a slaughter!

  • Here's another one:

    "Working in numerous radio stations, I've been supervisor and trainer to many newcomers. The one main thing that positively drove me crazy was that people would come to me with questions before they'd even attempted to find the answers on their own. It was the largest red flag of laziness. I'm always happy to answer questions, but if you have no ability to answer them yourself or seek out the answers yourself, why did we hire you into your role, again?"
