I stole this post

I'll admit it--I stole this post from Betsy over at her blog, located at
 http://mrspriceisrighthomeschooling.blogspot.com/.  But, it was so good, I had to share.  To see the original post, go visit Betsy's blog by clicking on the link.  It contains a link from Laura Ingalls Wilder:

 “I believe it would be much better for everyone if children were given their start in education at home. No one understands a child as well as his mother, and children are so different that they need individual training and study. A teacher with a room full of pupils cannot do this. At home, too, they are in their mother’s care. She can keep them from learning immoral things from other children.” 
~Laura Ingalls Wilder

So true.  I wonder what she would think of today's schools and education system, and common core. Would she see it as an improvement or as a decline in the system?
