And then I promise I will write something new!

  1. Looks like I can’t leave a comment on there without signing up. But very well written article about the problem of ACE. A lot of kids turn out smart despite the system. I did too. That doesn’t mean that thanks to fundamental cirriculum, I got no valid science education during the 12 years of my homeschooling days.
