This is exactly why I homeschool. My children aren't taught down "the middle". Our family doesn't worry if they miss a day and often we will take days off to explore new ideas, new landscapes, new towns or just a good old fashion potting plants lesson. My children always test above grade level and also are not subject to the ridiculous social pressures of public school. They do gymnastics, they do tap, they do Kungfu, they have sleep overs, they go to movies and play with friends. They have a full life not obstructed by the oppressive realities of tax payer day care.
Further note: I am not negative toward teachers. I think they are wonderful. I am negative toward public schools (and private to some degree) because they don't help raise leaders, they don't teach what needs to be taught for people to be successful in their lives. They teach to a book and by all current standards an embarrassing mochery of what most children are actually capable of.
