By all means, home school your kid if you think you can do a better job in every subject than the teachers who specialize in them...
I will agree the Anaheim SD does go too far though...Any and all monitoring should end at the schoolyard and at the school bell...
Invasion of privacy. School districts have no right to impose that kind of surveillance onto you, not when schooling is mandatory under law until 18. Also we do have a right to send our kids to the public schools. First off we pay the taxes that funds these schools. There is no ability to opt out of paying for public schools or public colleges. Believe me, if I could I would. I'd love nothing other than to see our terribly inefficient school system that fails students like it did me have to be restructured into a properly functioning system. Secondly, as I said before schooling is mandatory up until 18. If they expel a student they have to go somewhere. Expulsion does not automatically grant the kid exemption from the law. With an expulsion reason as stupid and draconian as this, it would be very easy to make a case against the district.
And yes, I would do a lot better at schooling my kid than many of my teachers did me. I can't even count how many teachers I've had that just didn't care to teach or were outright miserable. Trying to learn from a teacher who simply doesn't want to teach is impossible. I would know, I've been there many times. One teacher I had would even complain to their class about their life after their "teaching" was done. Nevermind taking questions and helping students who didn't understand their in-passionate and terrible lecture. That's not to mention how the school system judges kids based on their age rather than the kids themselves. Homeschooling is a system where the teaching is tailored to the kid, not like the assembly line style public school system.
