This is a great talk by Salman Kahn of the Kahn Academy:Salman Khan: Let's use video to reinvent education

I was able to stay home with my daughter until she was 7.5 years old, and she was reading at a 7th grade level by that time, and had been kicked ahead a year to 3rd grade from 1st, in private school, because the teachers said she was so far ahead of everyone else they didn't want her to be bored.
Anyway, there it is. Enjoy. Ignore the arrogant statist in the glasses at the end, he's nobody of any note.
