(I am the principal of a learning center and frequently get calls from parents throughout the day. One night, as I am relaxing at home, I gets one such call.)

Parent: “Is this [My Name]?”

Me: “Yes, it is.”

Parent: “Oh, I’m calling about [name of learning center]… Is this a home-school?”

Me: “No, actually. We are a learning center, not a home-school.”

Parent: *after a pause* “Oh… Is there a difference between homeschool and learning center?”

Me: “Yes. Home-school means you teach your child at home.”

Parent: “Oh.” *pauses* “And if I don’t want to do that, can I still send her to [name of learning center]?”

Me: “…Yes.”
