Frontispiece to Fireside Education, Samuel Griswold (Goodrich) (from here (en.wikipedia.org))
Confinement to home with all schools closed because of COVID-19 opened the door for many parents to homeschool their children. They’re finding it works and works well. Some may continue the practice long after schools reopen in the fall.
Homeschooling raises a real problem for liberals who want all children to be educated in America’s public schools. Period. That way, they have absolute control over what the children are taught, and that according to ‘party line.’
Certainly, our public-school system was started decades ago as a fundamental right for our nation’s children. For a long time, American kids were among the best educated in the world.
More recent data indicate that our children are falling behind compared with their peers in other nations of the world. The STEM curriculum and emphasis is one result of trying to reverse that trend.
