More on home/family schooling
Here is the entry that Ted refers to:Philip Greenspun's Weblog:
Read the comments - some great stuff there. In fact, I should have read it before my previous post!
The idea of collaboration had not occurred to me (I wonder if there is so much of that in the UK?) Also, the idea that you could get a day's school education done in less time, thereby having more time to do other stuff is also interesting.
The comment about "oh, they were English (home schooled) children, that is why they were polite" made me smile. Call me jaundiced, but I think that the English middle calss fixation on manners ( maketh man) is definitely eroding!
