How Is Getting Into College/Universities Using A Homeschooling Diploma and Transcript Honestly Fair?
I've been reading posts from homeschoolers on this board for a while now. It was really interesting to read at first, until I started to read the Q's posted by homeschooled kids or their parents asking about how homeschooling transcripts and diplomas are used by colleges,,,Reading the responses from everyone almost made my jaw hit the floor in awe. Almost everyone who responded said that it was perfectly fine for them to simply print up a diploma or even write their own transcripts!!!
I'm not saying that the kids' work or effort wasn't legitimate. What I'm saying is, how is it FAIR that someone can just print a diploma or transcripts up from their computer, and then use them for college entry? The fact of the matter is that anyone could simply write a transcript and say they were homeschooled. Actually, I read a few forum posts where the parents said that the colleges/universities didn't even ask for confirmation on whether the kids had been homeschooled or not; they just accepted their apps and test scores without asking any questions!
I don't think it's fair at all, or ethical to be totally honest.
