Focus on Family

I love this quote from Dumbing Us Down and couldn't agree more:

"A surprising number of otherwise sensible people find it hard to see why the scope and reach of our formal schooling networks should not be increased (by extending the school day or year, for instance) in order to provide an economical solution to the problems posed by the decay of the American family....I thought I'd tell you why, from a schoolteacher's perspective, we shouldn't be thinking of more school, but of less."
