Good Work in Singapore

A Maryknoll priest and IHM sister are spreading the word about the effectiveness of home education for all children, and especially for the mentally handicapped.
Father Adam told them, “Never underestimate what they can learn. Never underestimate what you can do for them. You’re the most trusted person in their lives, and remember, they are not stupid, but slow.”
Quite the reverse of the conventional wisdom in the U.S. that "special needs" children belong to the public schools and should never, ever be homeschooled by their non-expert parents.
