Even if I had the ability to teach at home, I wouldn't. I don't have the enthusiasm, drive and knowledge to school kids. That's why there's specialists in all aspects of life. I don't try to build a house or draw up a complex legal agreement by myself. I hire people who have the ability and training to do it myself. What I teach them is very important. They don't teach values at school. My kids have grown up with strong values from their home, and good knowledge from their school. Staying at home and not earn money to save $15k pa in fees is a great idea though. Especially if the education they get from me is inferior to what they would get from school. And let's put everybody into a trade. Whether it suits them or not. That's a great idea. I can just see my daughters as incompetent electricians. And while they can't be easily outsourced to India, technology is taking over jobs presently being done by tradespeople. Like 3D printing of houses, which has started to happen.
