Time for homeschooling in Iraq
Knowing children are being kidnapped daily, what parent would send their kids to school un-escorted, or school at all? Why not homeschool the children?
As I father of four I could not conceive sending my kids to school. If I did, I imagine I’d have to say something to my kids each morning along the lines of, “Bye! Have a great day. Hope to see you tonight.”
No, I don’t think so. While I’m no fan of homeschooling, in that situation it would be a matter of course.
Between 10 and 40 Iraqis are kidnapped every day – often children snatched on their way to school and held for a ransom of between £3,000 and £30,000. Source
