Many parents are happy public schools have a focus on academics so their children will be able to get good jobs, with the end being a good career. We don’t see a well-paying job as the ultimate goal.
Having said all that, I am happy that our oldest daughter seems to be off to a good step in the adult world of the job market. For the last couple years our oldest has been able to make good money babysitting, often $100 in a week. She has pretty simple tastes and hasn't felt a need find full time employment.
This summer she decided to look for a full time job. She had a hard time at first. I was pleased that she kept looking after applying at a couple dozen places. Early in July she finally had success with a temp agency. She got a job to help out with a college bookstore.
She has enjoyed the job and the managers seem happy with her. They have kept her around while it sounds like they have let a few others go.
Homeschooling doesn't seem to limit children in the adult job market!!!
