Keep Their Children Out of School?

Wrote John Holt:

Why do people take or keep their children out of school? Mostly for three reasons: they think that raising their children is their business not the government’s; they enjoy being with their children and watching and helping them learn, and don’t want to give that up to others; they want to keep them from being hurt, mentally, physically, and spiritually.

All three (and more) were a major part of our decision to keep our kids out of school.
