As a retired home educating mom, I have always understood the why-for’s of public education, but I do agree that it is a dying Grendel these days.
I chose what my kiddos learned, and they are well-educated in the things I thought they needed, as opposed to the junk that’s out there. Someone’s gotta do the job. Ha.
Thanks for this article! It is an ever-expanding experience to be alive these days, and the why’s and how’s are important.
