Going to a school is where you learn how crazy the world is. You interact with kids that are good, bad, friends, enemies, jocks, dorks, geeks, chicks, tomboys, bitches, bullies, honest, liars, druggies, straight edge, spoiled, poor, genius, idiots, boys, men, girls, women. You have teachers that are caring, could care less, inspiring, dead wood, fair, unfair. You interact with individuals, dozens, and sometimes hundreds of people at a time. Computer labs, machine shops, wood shops, sports equipment, art supplies, and these days even 3D printers. All that interaction in the hallways, homeroom, classrooms, gym, music, art, cafeteria. It's all so overwhelming and scary, but that's all part of it too.
Trying to pack this into the home version is quite an undertaking.
My wife and I were scared, well more nervous, about my kids going to school, and thought about homeschooling. I convinced my wife, who would have be the stay-at-home teacher, that it would be too much, and decided I really wanted my kids to go to school. She kept pushing, but I pointed out how hard it was just taking care of the crazy kids and how hard it would be adding in all the above too. Eventually, she gave up on the idea.

"Check me out! I'm dancin! I'm dancin!"
I still quote those occasionally and my family thinks I'm weird.
Yes, but some of us think child abuse is so disturbing that even this word play is not funny.
I'm sure you wouldn't say that joke to the abused child's parents.
How about to some random parents?
Some parents you know?
Your own parents?
Your close friends?
I draw the line at myself, and even still feel wrong thinking it.
We've got freedom of speech but that doesn't mean you have to say everything that comes to mind. Define a filter for yourself.
You mean ground drones?
