If you want to tell me what you think of this Web site or anything on it, please do so by using one of the following addresses: comments at magicschoolbook dot com (to tell me how much you like or dislike the site) or faults at magicschoolbook dot com (to tell me you think something needs to be improved or added in a hurry). If you are a child, do not use your own e-mail account, but ask one of your parents to send the message for you - no child should ever give away their e-mail address to anyone they don't know, no matter how trustworthy that person may appear to be. It is unlikely that you will get a reply to your e-mail, so I have to apologise for that and thank you in advance for your comments. Please highlight key words or phrases in bold text so that it's less likely that anything important that you say will be missed.

This Web site will also suit anyone who is interested in homeschooling, unschooling, deschooling or hothousing (I don't care for the last of these - children have better things to do than spend all their time being stuffed with dead knowledge as it merely serves to prevent them from becoming creative). Magic schoolbook is particularly well suited to gifted children who want to be able to learn at high speed. It was also designed to appeal to children who don't like school or who even hate school, so long as they want to learn: that is the key thing. School is boring because there is very little learning going on: juat a lot of misdirected work. I want to provide real education here for all children so that they can all attend the world's best school while attending any school or even while staying in their own home. I want to make learning fun, easy and extremely rapid. If you're wondering why this is in white, it's a way of getting key terms for search across.
