Should we use the 'p' word

Oh, politics. Shouldn't be talking about it because it's not home education, is it? It isn't even rocket science which you could, at least, argue is of interest to educators.

But I console myself with the fact that, of my two children, one is vastly interested in politics and even pauses in her day to day life to debate political issues with me.

Everything, in fact, is grist to the home educating mill. Everything is educational. Everything.

What a glorious thought.

  1. Yay! Let's celebrate the 'p' word. By swimming against the educational mainstream (especially since Badman), our kids are already more likely to question the assertions of those in power. With the current crop of politicians, I certainly hope our kids do question everything!
