How to raise a genius

In order to raise a genius, the first thing a parent must do is to not send a child to a public school; according to Harold G. McCurdy, a professor at the University of North Carolina.

Based on his study of the childhoods of 29 geniuses, conducted back in 1960, he determined that “three striking factors seemed to be typical of the childhood pattern of genius”:

one, close association with an interested adult; two, relative isolation from other children; and three, a great development of imagination and fantasy.

“Public school education,” he declared, “works against these three things.”

Apparently McCurdy’s study has been embraced by some proponents of home schooling.
