No, just schools in general. You know, where they can talk about different topics, play sports, join an organized musical group. I think that, in general, most parents aren't capable of providing a quality education like a good teacher could, from K through 12th grade. Maybe in the lower grades, but not in the higher. I know that when I was in high school, my classes and interestes were beyond the scope of what my parent's depth of knowledge covered. My mom deals with finance and my dad with electronics and both have college educations. But neither of them really knew anything other then basic chemestry or biology. Basic pre-calc quickly became over both of their heads. Juding from my typical post here, my kids probably shouldn't come to me for advice on an english paper. A co-worker's wife tried to home school their kids a few year back. All the kids where in the equivilent of elementry school. She quickly realized that while she was intelligent and educated, the depth of material as a whole was over her head to teach. It's unfortunate that there are schools that don't have quality teachers and that parents are essentially forced to look elsewhere for quality education. Maybe if I was brought up in such an area my opinion would be different. But I was raised in a decent school system, well educated, and so I don't really have doubts about my kids education as they most likely will be attending the exact same schools I did. It wasn't an assumption. It was an opinion. Opinions, by definition, can't really be wrong or false, because, well, it's an opinion and not a fact. It's just what my thought are. And it wasn't even an opinion of the group as a whole. It was just the opinion of one person that happens to be a part of that group that reminds me of her.
