Quote of the Day Back to Top
Nothing enrages me more than when people criticize my criticism of school by telling me that schools are not just places to learn maths and spelling, they are places where children learn a vaguely defined thing called socialization. I know. I think schools generally do an effective and terribly damaging job of teaching children to be infantile, dependent, intellectually dishonest, passive and disrespectful to their own developmental capacities.
Seymour Papert

The Perfect Partnership: Public Libraries and Homeschoolers
Christyna Hunter
According to the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics 2013 report, the number of school-aged children being homeschooled has risen 17% in five years. As a community partner, the public library can assist this growing population’s needs.
You CAN Home School an Only Child
An only child deserves an excellent education and formation, as does any other child. Don’t deny your child, just because he is your only one, the benefits of homeschooling. Make it work. The home educated only child will profit ten-fold from your daily guidance in how to become a good and decent person by watching you in your daily life. The majority of his life will be spent as an adult so this training is of utmost importance. We have been fed a pile of lies to think that our child’s ability to socialize consists in getting along with a multitude of kids his own age.
