Netherlandish schools (was Re: Untranslated notes)

I have three intelligent daughters, the first of whom will go to high
school in three and a half years. I'm *worried*. I hope they change the
school system again before that; the way it is now it can only be a
change for the better.

You might consider homeschooling them, at least in languages. As long as
they enjoy learning, or they are dutiful, or you check on their work
often enough, they'll do well on their own. (That's what I do.) If you
work during the day, they can teach themselves most subjects, or you
could teach them in the evenings.

ObLanguage: I was forced to drop Spanish after only one and a half years
due to homeschooling. I was in school before, but I had trouble teaching
myself a language, especially with that course. After all that time, my
main question was "How do I form questions in Spanish?" It seems to be
pure word order, now that I put a bit of thought to it.
