“...as it has had no real effect on the last several generations“
It has had a horrible affect! Look around! That is a large part of the world’s problems today. I absolutely believe the social aspect is that important. All you really have to do is look around, and then look at history.
And, I’m not talking about homeschooling either. I am talking about an online curriculum that isn’t enforced by lazy parents. School at home is not going to work long term. It’s already been too long, and we ARE seeing the Kids will do the minimum to get by. And this will be the dumbest generation in history. Wait for it.
