Thomas Edison Would Have Been Given Adderall Today

An excellent read on one of the many benefits of homeschooling!

“The trouble with our way of educating is that it does not give elasticity to the mind. It casts the brain into a mold. It insists that the child must accept. It does not encourage original thought or reasoning, and it lays more stress on memory than observation.” - Thomas Edison

"For children with a natural tendency to be active and moving, or who don't learn best by sitting still and listening passively to an adult, school is not a good fit. These children are often frustrated by school and its rigidity, and teachers are frustrated by behavior that can make classroom control an issue. Schooling and normal childhood behaviors are very often incompatible. In fact, many of the families I know who decided to home-school their children--often without ever considering the option before--did so because they realized that schooling was crushing their child's originality, creativity, and exuberance. Like Nancy Edison, they wanted better for their children."
