Too small to fail

I’ve never heard of this initiative till today, but the video is below. I found myself agreeing with a lot of the points. However, one of the reasons my husband and I chose to homeschool is that more than just competitive edge and economics, we wanted our children growing up with greater awareness of their world by actually living in it. Learning by living.

That said, I also sincerely believe that home education is a luxury that not everyone can afford. We feel the burdens of being a one-income family and we pray that we can continue this endeavour without being forced into a position where we will have to stop. Only time and economics will tell.

For that reason, initiatives such as this are important in changing the priorities of America. A great video and something to think about.
