I enjoyed this as an overview of the role of public ed in our society. It makes me feel even more confident in my homeschooling path as compulsory ed has been anything but constant since its inception.It's been one long experiment that keeps changing and morphing as new goals are desired. It really comes down to fundamental paradigms as to what you believe education is for, whether it's for vocationalizing, pure academics or learning for learning's sake. Your own goals will determine your children's course through compulsory ed.

Sally The thing I liked best about this review is your correct usage of "its" and "it's!" Isn't that terrible of me!? But I suppose it means you make a good case for homeschooling. lol
