More from the Idler

This one from the Telegraph:

"This is the spirit we need to bring to education: the less school, the better. We need to explore other options - home schooling, learning groups, home tutors.

That doesn't necessarily mean a lot of hard work or expense. This is where idleness comes in. It is precisely a love of learning and curiosity that schools tend to kill.

So it is the responsibility of the idle parent to implant a love of education. The way to do it is to lead by example and curl up with a good book."
