I don't think this is all about the date, though it does seem almost too good to believe. Anyway, courtesy of Key Words, we hear that:
"In a stunning decision that has caused an uproar throughout New Hampshire, the township of Beale NH has abolished its lone public school and will convert the building into a homeschool resource center."
The reason? The local school was failing dismally, and
"We had a list of different types of education and their success rates in terms of testing, subsequent college attendence and graduation, employment, entrepreneurship and civic involvement. Homeschooling topped everything and it was less expensive than pretty much anything else out there too! Add to the mixture the fact that so many parents were already pulling their children out of school and it just seemed like a perfect fit."
UPDATE: Yep, it was all about the date!
