My thoughts over coffee this morning:


So, if all kids really want to learn, do kids learn most from what you read to them or from what they read to themselves?

And, if they learn the most from what they read to themselves, is the problem with formal schooling less about the large class sizes and the inadequate budgets and more about the fact that even the most well-meaning teachers succeed in getting in between their student's and the subject the kids want to learn about?

And, if teachers get in their students way at school, are home school moms who just try to copy what professional teachers do at home doing the same thing to their kids?

And, so, should I just try and stay out of Norah's way today?
