Aaaaaand they all read by the age of 4, write and do math by the age of six, and six of the ten went to college at the age of twelve. The Harding children who have graduated from college are : a Navy doctor, a mechanical engineer, a musician, an architect, and a computer scientist. It's statistically impossible for all ten children to be exceptionally intelligent. That leaves one other explanation: public education is so broken, that a couple with no apparent formal training (one of them is named Kip) is able to raise ten children (I doubt the adult to students ratio is much higher in the public education system either once we add in all the MikefromBXs into the equation - and these people also earn a living, while doing this) has managed to succeed at a task public education generally fails at, and it took them about half the time. Maybe it has something to do with not treating children as a statistic or a herd animal, while trying to educate them. Maybe it's time to stop buying into the myth that public education is the key to a prosperous, educated country. The evidence that public education is what ruins American children's education is overwhelming.
