    From a News-Journal Op/Ed extolling the virtues of full-day kindergarten:

    The disparity is created during the years before kindergarten when children have various forms of care. Some came from a home where they never had to stand in line. Some came from structured preschools such as Head Start. Some came from day care with daily lessons. They all are going to need different types of guidance and education to achieve success.

    Standing in line is an important skill to have mastered? It never ends, does it?

    I sometimes joke that you can always tell the homeschooled kids in any group. They are the ones that don’t immediately form into a straight line.

    I’ll have you know my children are very good at forming a line. Of course, they also insist on quacking while they do it, but my “ducklings” do follow me in a line. 😉

    Four kids, one bathroom. You better believe my kids know how to line up. 🙂

    …Some read better than public school 6th graders, have been installing their own software for years and can operate a computer better than any adult in the room…
