WITHOUT SCHOOLING.

Not necessarily a bad parent

"Taking your child out of school doesn't necessarily make you a bad parent"

Well, phew .... I breathe a sigh of relief reading the title of this article from The Guardian, which concludes: "The trouble is, an education system that knows the grade of everything and the value of nothing is an education system that has forgotten what education is for. How can education foster creative and inquiring minds when disagreeing with what educators think is best has become a crime? It’s great to do well at school, get good grades, go to university and join a useful profession. But it’s dreadful to insist that families and children who don’t fit that mould, and think other things are important too, are inferior, wrong and in need of punishment."
