We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I am all for this. This would have eliminated a lot of heartache in my family. I have one kid who dreads the slow pace of class and wishes it could move faster. I have others who could benefit from a slower pace in some of their classes.
Really, what it comes down to is letting kids who are self-motivated move at their own pace. Then, spend your direct teaching time with the kids who need a push and a shove to the end of the race.
