Education, not Schooling

Oh, I LOVE this quote by one of my favorite homeschool advocates!
"...if we're going to change what's rapidly becoming a disaster of ignorance, we need to realize that the institution "schools" very well, but it does not "educate"; that's inherent in the design of the thing. It's not the fault of bad teachers or too little money spent. It's just impossible for education and schooling to be the same thing."
--John Taylor Gatto, "Why Schools Don't Educate"

And, no-- no baby yet...! 

Love, Mama Rachel

I will not approve any comments that are rude, negative, or disrespectful. Thanks for being civil! :-)
