In Britain, thanks to the Education Act, it is difficult to home-school your kid, without getting ARRESTED.
But in the United States, it is a lot easier. And an increasing number of parents are taking that route. Thanks to the fact you can get a six-pack of guns from any Guns ‘R’ Us, going to school is a risky business.
However, it is not just the DANGER that persuades some parents to take this step – in America’s Deep South, people do not want to send their kids to public schools, because they teach that WEIRD stuff – like sex education, science and Darwin.
All of which means if you think Americans are dumb NOW (George Wan… sorry, WaLker Bush, Sarah Palin, Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann) – just wait until the NEXT generation emerges…
