I understand what you say about HS, but had to work very hard at making sure my child was well socialised and it worked very well. Infact, the
education part worked very well and my child ended up in good sets for all subjects on return to school, which is not unusual for one to one
But if exams are you aim, schools are the easiest bet because of the exam support they give.
But back to the holidays issue, this is very 'communist'.
I have relatives in eastern europe, and the indoctrination of children in state education in the times that I spent there was worrying. Mothers
rarely saw their children and the hours parents worked to survive were probably topping 50+ hours a week.
However, the good news is that nothing stays the same and any attempts to indoctrinate in the age of the internet are doomed to failiure if a child
can be kept away from distratctions such as games, rubbish on tv etc and kept interested in books, conversation and thinking then the chances are high
for good outcome and little thought contol by the state! keep them away from 'bread and circuses' and encourage argument, discussion, tinking and
creativity. Teach all that you can of solid history and creative thinking.
For governments to finally take over the thinking processes of people the interenet would either have to go down permanently or be completely state
sponsored and controlled, which I can't see happening yet.
That's another part of the 'game' for the future!
