Right on Jesse. Right on Indiana. The beauty of living in the age of instant information and communication is that everything one needs to learn is free and at one's fingertips. Physical schools are outdated and no longer necessary, all they will do is hold kids back and brainwash them with statist propaganda. I say let the kids learn via Khan Academy or something similar, and let them pursue whatever interests them. Really, other than the daycare aspect, why do we really need school buildings when the best learning material is available instantly on the internet, for no cost? Yes, physical schools for the kiddies were necessary when the information wasn't readily available, but now they are unnecessary.

Foster,Toward Soviet America, 1932National Chairman of theAmerican Communist Party (1933-44, 1945-57)
