In her public-school class, however, Jenny has to learn allrepparttar 147575 materialrepparttar 147576 teacher gives her inrepparttar 147577 specific timerepparttar 147578 teacher allows. Then (in later grades)repparttar 147579 teachers will test her. If Jenny didn’t like to studyrepparttar 147580 subjectsrepparttar 147581 teacher told her to learn and did bad on her test, she can feel hurt and humiliated. She then associates learning with pain and humiliation. This in turn can extinguish Jenny’s joy in learning.

With Google and Yahoo, Jenny finds learning a constant joy. With public schools, more often than not, learning becomes a boring drudge or worse.

Government-controlled public schools will never give your kidsrepparttar 147582 kind of joyous education they deserve,repparttar 147583 kind your children can get in a homeschooling environment.
