Over Two Million Children Home-schooled in the US
A study released a few days ago by the National Home Education Research Institute (NHERI) estimates that there were over 2 million children being home-schooled in the United States in 2010. According to the HSDLA, the Home School Legal Defense Association which advocates the legal right of parents to home-school their children, there were only an estimated 20,000 home-schooled children 30 years ago.
Rael commented on this news saying that it is a wonderful trend. “With computers and internet there is no more need for schools and universities.”
In a recent interview to a French magazine, Rael was explaining that Internet is becoming the Internet the central nervous system of Humanity. “People can find by themselves the knowledge they seek instead of buying what the main media are telling them. No one listen to CD anymore, books are on their way to museum – after all Guthenberg is quite old now. Internet also brings revolution in the educative system with more and more teachings available online for all. Then, why should children go to school and be bullied and mingled with unrefined, racist or sexist people?”
He added that home-schooling will create much more respectful and non-violent children by removing bullying from their life.
