Of course, I’ve always said that Home Schooling your children is the best thing you can do for them.
The down side of this, at least from my perspective (as a home schooled person who home schooled his own kids) is that most families are NOT set up to do a decent job. They’ve left it to the government so long that they have no decent resources at home. The internet, properly used, can fill in some of this – but it’s not a complete resource in and of itself. Add to this the closing of public libraries, which denies their resources to all, and most families are going to be left scrambling to fill in the gaps. My understanding is that at least some schools have had the students take their books home – but if dad and mom don’t know the material they’ll find it difficult to help the kids learn. I predict a huge increase in YouTube access as folks look for “how to” videos on the various subjects.
