my two oldest children (9 and 8) spend 1/4 to 1/3 the amount of time in school each day that public school students do. We spend 1/10 of what the govmt spends on the average public school student. Somehow, they know more about more than their peers, have way more free time and enjoy learning.
The secret: They read. A lot. They are provided with good, entertaining, old, classic books and they do the rest. Books written before the concerted effort to dumb everyone down.
It's really simple. It doesn't cost a lot. They enjoy it. These 3 principles are the antithesis of government run "education".
