“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
Thank you for your kind mention of Rockin’ Granola, friend 🙂

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.

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