    No wonder the number of "homeschooled" students has doubled in the last ten years.

    Maybe, just maybe, the education of children should be left to their parents instead of the dept. of education.

    Oh sure, and wake up with yet another generation of kids educated fully to Amish standards.

    Who needs calculus anyway? Just domeheads, right? evolution? fogedaboudit. History? WE"LL write the new history. Languages? English only, no Spanish, French, German, Italian, Mandarin, Japanese, none of that crap. Were AMERICAN"S here.

    Religious education? There's only one.... JC died for us all. That's all you need to know.

    Astronomy? Who the hell needs THAT crap anyway?

    Geology? What for, Earth is 6000 years old.

    Medicine? We have everything we need, aspirin, vitamins.

    Not Rio, Natal. That's where my daughter and son in law and some of my grandkids live. He is a physicist, Phd from BU, she has Ma in music and they teach at university there.
