http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/5382994.stm I don't see this being a good idea. Kids spend too much time in front of screens already plus the system is said to be an option for: * bullied children who need their confidence rebuilding * families living abroad who want an English education for their child * children with physical or personal health barriers * children who have been home-educated As far as the 1st and 3rd options go - imo, these kids should be in school, surrounded by other kids. School's not just about learning, it's about learning how to interact in different social situations; learning how to cope for later life. The 2nd point: send them to an international English school - again they need the interaction. The home-education is another thread.
