I think public school is essential. It’s important that we have a common denominator and that we don’t leave people behind simply because we can afford a private school or a homeschool situation, and others can’t.
On the other hand, at the same time, sooner or later, all kids are homeschooled.
They’re homeschooled for five years before they even show up in public school. They’re homeschooled every day, from three in the afternoon ’til eleven at night.
That’s on us. That’s on the parents. What standards are we setting? What is the culture like at home?Seth Godin – Akimbo – Connect the Dots
