Down with Evolution
I just visited a blog written by a homeschooling mom, who asked her kids to write a list of reasons why homeschooling is better than public school. Third on their list was, "We don't have to listen to people talking about evolution."

Yes indeed, there's a big advantage. Any circumstance in which we can minimize the amount of intelligent discussion in favor of a single, black-and-white approach, that's a good thing for the development of our children's mind and spirit.


In my world, being exposed to different ideas, even if they're ones I totally disagree with, is a good way for kids to figure themselves out and broaden their minds.

Maybe I'm just not supposed to understand.
