    On why g-schooling is better than home education:

    [Dinwiddie County Public Schools Superintendent Charles] Maranzano said that the beauty of public schools is that they have subject specific experts teaching students and that working with others teaches students to be stronger individuals.

    “We are preparing children today for a global experience,” Maranzano said. “They’ve got to be flexible and adaptable and they’ve got to be ready to modulate and function in a world without borders. What we do well is bring disparate, socio-economically deprived children into the same building as privileged children and educate them and prepare them for a role in the world.”

    Modulate? WTF is that supposed to mean?

    “subject specific experts teaching students” , that explains why the football coach got stuck teaching American History ( a subject he knew nothing about) when I was in High School.

    I believe modulate means STFU.
