Obama on Homeschooling

"Q. Do you support home schooling?

A. Barack Obama respects the decisions reached by some parents to home school their children, provided those parents are conforming to the laws and regulations set forward by their states governing home-based instruction."

To be fair, if you'd asked a pm in waiting that question here, you'd have got something like "while we respect the decision of some parents to HE their children, we believe that our countries school system is the best place for educating the UK citizens of the future" or some such rubbish.

Yes, quite so.

It's the end of the world as we know it. There's no place left to run.
