What Sir Ken Robinson discusses in this video further fortifies my conviction to homeschool. At many points while listening to him talk did I want to applaud and shout "Amen!". As a matter of fact, I think I actually did. :)
Now, I know that circumstances may change around here and the option to homeschool may be taken away from us. Thankfully, there are more non-traditional schools to choose from and should there ever be a need to research them, I'll keep all of Sir Ken Robinson's points in mind.
PS: Sir Ken Robinson poked fun at the way pre-school has become so cutthroat and competitive. It reminded me of this show I chanced upon the Home and Health channel about parents of pre-schoolers and NY private school agents. It was something like a reality show about the agonizing process of application to hyper-exclusive NY kindergartens. I'm sorry this may sound judgmental, but it was SO ridiculous. And disturbing.
