Home-school defeats the purpose of even going to school. (1:09)

A LOT OF YOUNG PEOPLE DO DRUGS,

WHICH IS A SHAME.

I WAS A FORMER TEACHER.

I TAUGHT SHAKESPEARE TO 7th AND

8th GRADERS IN THE SOUTH BRONX.

THESE KIDS NEEDED REMEDIAL WORK

ON "THE LITTLE ENGINE THAT

COULD."

SOME OF MY KIDS, BLESS THEIR

HEART-- ONE OF MY GIRLS THOUGHT

THAT YVES SAINT LAURENT WAS

THE NIGHT BEFORE SAINT LAURENT.

THINK ABOUT IT.

YOU'LL GET IT.

(LAUGHTER)

SOME OF MY KIDS WERE SMART,

THOUGH.

THEY'D ASK ME QUESTIONS TO WHICH

I DON'T KNOW THE ANSWER,

QUESTIONS LIKE: "IF HOMOSEXUALS

DO NOT REPRODUCE, HOW COME THERE

ARE SO MANY OF THEM?"

(LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE)

A LOT OF PEOPLE DO HOME

SCHOOLING NOW, TEACHING YOUR

KIDS.

CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW HORRIBLE?

THE WHOLE POINT OF GOING TO

SCHOOL IS SO THAT YOU DON'T HAVE

TO BE AROUND YOUR PARENTS.

CAN YOU IMAGINE IF THEY WERE

YOUR TEACHERS?

"AND THIS IS THOMAS EDISON.

HE INVENTED THE ELECTRIC

LIGHT BULB BECAUSE HE KNEW HOW

TO CLEAN UP HIS ROOM."

(LAUGHTER)

"AND HE DID NOT TALK BACK TO HIS

MOTHER!"
