    I truly believe our eldest would thrive in this self directed environment, and is stifled by the regimentation of his school. The rub is, what alternatives do we have? Home schooling? Even with the necessary training, it is a daunting proposition. Our big hope to get him through next year is his gaining entry into the Clarence Science Initiative, a fortnightly day of scientific excitement at one of the local high schools. Fingers crossed. He finds out this week.

      I’ll be keen to hear how it works out, cap’n. In all the talk of education reforms, it’s depressing that policy-makers never actually seem consider a real change in how schooling is approached or, more importantly, consider what education is actually for.

      Also, keen to pop down for a visit before terribly much longer 🙂

        You are welcome any time. 🙂 We won’t be going away for any length of time before the end of January. And I will let you know if Flynn makes the cut for CSI.
