May I suggest to young cubs? Mark Twain

Dear Home School Cubs,

Subject: The student challenge that administrator must pass, under penalty of losing points.

Do you prefer home schooling or just want more time to fish?

Do you feel qualified to help hire your own teacher?

Enough with the preliminary qualifying questions. What do you say about setting yourself up for success? How may you certify your teacher is qualified to teach you?

What do you say to gathering up amongst your friends a proper test for those grownups which self-proclaim what you must learn?

Write down a proper test to see if those aforementioned grownups are up to the task. Certify that they are indeed qualified to teach you what you need to know. And make sure that they can & will do so. Have them prove to you by official testimony answers to you cubs that should be taught.

Have those grownups submit evidence of their successful work product.

challenge them in open testimony to answer questions about what you expect them to teach. Match their answers with those of your senior classmates.

Specify clear punishment for failure. Let penalty fit the offense should they fail: lost points; detention; expulsion, or worse.

Have your local newspaper & film crew record this event. The student challenge.

Be certain of your requirement. Hire the best of the den.

Hint: You might warm them up to your test by setting it at less than the 5th grade level. Humble them with the knowledge that, "even Mark Twain answered this question. And he never graduated the 5th grade.

Best wishes.
