Do the majority of persons who were homeschooled homeschool their own children?

User Avatar
Yes, I was homeschooled through highschool. I have a third and a first grader who we are teaching at home. I am homeschooled. My parents were not and thought that school was a huge waste of their time. I did go to school for K-6 and I had the hardest time. I am glad I am homeschooled and I plan to homeschool my kids, when I have them. Yes there is alot of people that homeschool throughout the country. It is becoming more and more prevelant these days because of the inherent problems with the public school system. No, not a majority. Some homeschooled adults resented being home school because they missed out on the public school experience or so they thought. Its not a easy decision to home school because you must have a primary bread winner stay at home with the kids. You must check in with the state and school system to be sure your teaching the children properly and that the children are learning on the proper scale. Its tough but rewarding and its a personal choice.

Why did keep Dr. Jekyll taking the potion?

User Avatar
he was addicted Dr, Jekyll was investigating the phenomena that the drug produces, namely removing all goodness from a person, leaving only evil. At first he kept taking the drug to move from one condition to the other. Then later the evil condition always exerted itself without the need for the drug so he had to take it to keep himself in normal condition.

Is Dr Jekyll good or bad?

User Avatar
In the novel, Dr.Jekyll is pot rayed as the good version of his soul, having been separated into two. However, it is also debatable as to whether Dr.Jekyll is a good man because he facilitates the existence of the evil Hyde. The simple answer is that he is good but this can be explored in more depth.

What did Dr Jekyll look like?

User Avatar
My guess is a tall, thin, studious man wearing eyeglasses. this seems to fit the media characterization of scientists in general. ( both Good and Mad).Female scientists tend to fit a somewhat Horsey profile.

What is the theme of the poem The Moon by Robert Louis Stevenson?

User Avatar
This poem makes the moon seem like a caring and watchful being, when most people would probably just think of it as something they see in the sky at night.
