. . . an educational minority, that is. Yet another show that my kids watch (today it's Zoboomafoo!) is running a "School is Cool!" episode. That's the episode where the main character on the show, be they child, animal, or inanimate object, goes to school for the first time. Usually, they are anxious at first, but kindly adults or other friends show them how awesomely fun school is. By the end of the episode, they can't wait to come back.
Of course, the vast majority of children in this country do go to school, so it makes sense that a lot of children's shows will deal with the topic. But it does feel a bit strange for homeschooled kids to see all these advertisements for the joys of the classroom. Probably similar to the way it felt for black people back when television used to be almost completely white (that was before my time, so I'm only guessing).
But JG has his own understanding of what school is like because I work at a school. He visits there plenty and doesn't feel like he's missing anything.
