I don't think it's a big deal if Wendy homeschools her children. What matters to me when I make my vote is which candidate is the best on the issues.
Wendy Day homeschools her children.
For the time being, the Marion Township resident plans to continue to do so, even as she is sworn into a four-year term on the Howell Public Schools Board of Education.
The reasons she took her children out of Howell schools last year had more to do with external factors; however, issues within the schools that Day said compromise her family's values system played a role in the decision to keep them out next year.
Day said she doesn't like evolution being taught as fact instead of theory.
Day also had issues with the display of the Howell High School Diversity Club rainbow flag, which she and others in the community said was the recognized symbol of the gay and lesbian pride movement.
The flag has since been removed, but, more recently, Day said she doesn't agree with the district's new sex education curriculum, which provides seventh-grade students with information on condoms.
"Those were a variety of issues that compromise our beliefs as a family," Day said.
