"It is easy enough to be against things, but in the end we should answer what we are for."

On the eve of another home schooling week, here is an energizer.

Mrs. P weighs in...
The entire piece is brilliant and bloody spot-on, but this made me chuckle (and of course, gave me hope at the same time):
We could hardly do worse, than achieve this state in which a child home-schooled in the most derelict family may emerge into adulthood in better moral and intellectual condition than the child criminalized by his peers in the perpetual day care.


  1. All well and good Mrs. B, but what about socialization? As an acquaintance was telling us the other night how important school is for children socially, Little Master Blurn 1 came into the room to inform us that her sons were punching each other in the face for no apparent reason. We laughed and laughed.

  2. Touche, Mr. Blurn. My kids can carry on a conversation with other humans AND punch each other in the face (although there's always a reason).

  3. I'm not bragging (who's kidding whom? Of course I am) but my poorly-socialized, dim-witted homeschooled child from a derelict family has once again been awarded a scholarship at university.

  4. Wow, congrats to the eldest Miss P.! That is great news.
