“If [our schools] are still bad maybe we should declare educational bankruptcy, give the people their money and let them educate themselves and start their own schools.” ~ William John Bennett

  2. Schools are “still bad”? This isn’t the attitude you normally post around here. Homeschool, yes; take responsibility for your children’s education, yes; but knocking down schools in the process? No. And remember, in a democracy we do have the money and we do have the power over our own schools. While I fully support individual families to make the best decisions for their members, no homeschooling family should forget the importance of having free and thriving schools for all our neighbors.

    • Hi Katie! I’m not knocking down anything, but I like to share interesting quotes about education with my weekend links that get us all thinking (whether or not we agree with them). This one is from a former US Secretary of Education.

  3. Great links as always. And, I liked the quote : )

  4. I can’t get the link for ■On doing school at home :: To Think Is to Create to work. I even tried just going to the main page, but it just says it’s unable to load this page. Help?
