The flow of stored energy needed to operate our infrastructure is ending. Belief in or dedication to a particular ideology may alter individual perceptions, but not physical facts. We need to re-think our civilization from the grass roots up, not bumble blindly on.

If a gathering of 20 homestead units has
"perfectly" randomly distributed population ages,
multi-generation families, etc., it might have 2
kids per class / age, and some approach to
"Home Schooling" will probably be required.

"Home schooled" children have demonstrated
that traditional classrooms may not be essential,
or even rational, but those programs rely on
educational materials developed "elsewhere",
published and shipped, and on non "expert"
parental teaching. Home schooled does not
mean second rate. Education should be
emphasized in all aspects of the Homestead
association.

If there is not an overall crash, the web offers
expanding opportunities for education, without
"leaving home". Following a crash, the
homestead association should as soon as possible
document all of the resident knowledge. Note
though, homeschooling or any teaching approach
with too small of a class is an in-efficient use of
the teaching resource.
