"Satisfactory instruction"? The members of the Ontario Federation of Teaching Parents are very interested in providing the very best of instruction for their children. They want instruction to be "more" than "satisfactory."
"Also, unlike most teachers, homeschooling parents *never* lose track of their 'former students'! We know exactly how each and every one of them turns out, and if we blow it, the outcome haunts us for the rest of our lives. No salaried teacher takes on the kind of responsibility that we do (except maybe one teaching her/his own child) and no salaried teacher is ever held so personally accountable."
