Good grief!

Over in the States, government is also starting look askance at home schooling. I can see why:

In short, the results found in the new study are consistent with 25 years of research, which show that as a group homeschoolers consistently perform above average academically. The Progress Report also shows that, even as the numbers and diversity of homeschoolers have grown tremendously over the past 10 years, homeschoolers have actually increased the already sizeable gap in academic achievement between themselves and their public school counterparts-moving from about 30 percentile points higher in the Rudner study (1998) to 37 percentile points higher in the Progress Report (2009).

Teachers, eh? Loathe them or ignore them, they're utterly cunting useless.

Christ only knows how bad it would look here.

Which is why our beloved government is starting to regulate home schooling out of existence.

Apparently This is what they mean teaching from home in America these days.

In Kraut-land homeschooling is illegal. I can just see it being outlawed in the UK under some spurious harmonisation directive.
