The purpose of K-12 education is not for a child to learn all there is; the purpose is of K-12 education is for a child to learn well those things which enable him to go on independently (this means without you) to learn all there is, or all he will need. In essence, a true education teaches a child to recognize and identify truth, to analyze the statements of others for truth or falsehood, and to communicate truth to others effectively.
Piling on more to please a parent's sense of accomplishment, to look good in front of
others, or to assuage a feeling of guilt adds nothing to a child's true education.
