Mom & Dad homes or dual guardian homes, then it has the potential to be easier, but not necessarily. There are FAR TOO MANY variables at play, and the "Scott's World" ideology of "everyone should be able to be home and school their kids perfectly" just isn't what happens in practice. What "should be" isn't at all and is rarely what "is".
So what I said was many, not all. And the whole school concept disregards all those people who can't work the same schedule as school. Work overnights? Screwed... now you work AND have to deal with your kids at school.
School isn't some silver bullet. The government taking over the care and education of kids isn't a silver bullet. Governments are often exerting this control, people have given in to it because it feels nice to not have as much responsibility or they feel trapped, and society has conformed because it had to. Skip school in this manner, and society will adapt to that new normal. Make school be centralized but online, we'll adapt. Make school be at night, we'll adapt. Different people get benefits or screwed in different scenarios. You are using "people have already adapted" as if school changing wouldn't need to result in jobs changing. But it changed in the twentieth century, and the system is garbage, so why not make people adjust again, but to something actually good?
solid point - at least I currently think so - how long has the modern school setup been in place? i.e. k-12 go to school m-f 7'ish to 3:30ish?
