From our bulging "Beyond Satire" files

Quebec judge orders Roman Catholic homeschooled children to attend public school; orders 3 and 5 year olds from same family into daycare for "socialization".
In her ruling, Judge Bernier called the mother’s teaching approach “outdated,” saying it emphasized repetition exercises and acquisition of knowledge rather than the Ministry’s preferred approach of teaching learning skills.
Translation: instead of memorizing the multiplication tables ("acquisition of knowledge"), learn how to use a calculator (skill).
