John Taylor Gatto said that when a child is ready and willing, he can learn the entire scope of basic math in less than 100 hours. I believe him. When it comes to learning, readiness is everything. And– contrary to what the scope and sequence programs of our schools suggest (dictate)– all children are not ready to learn the same things at the exact same age. God has made each child unique, with his own scope and sequence for learning and developing. (I read in a book that Einstein didn’t speak until he was four years old. Can you imagine how much a modern parent would wring his hands and fret over this and search for the best therapies and “help” for their child?!)  From High Desert Home
