“It takes a village to raise a child…and a vineyard to home school one”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic resulted in many schools closing, with students being home schooled. “It takes a village to raise a child” is an African proverb. Many home schooling parents felt like they needed to drink.

“They say it takes a village to raise a child… but how many handles will it take to home school one?” was posted on Twitter by Cut Spike Distillery on April 9, 2020. “They say it takes a village to raise a child. Then it takes a vineyard to home school one” was posted on Twitter by Dennis Patterson on April 9, 2020.

“A neighbor told me teachers are underappreciated. She said the saying goes ‘it takes a village to raise a child but it’ll take a vineyard to home school my kid’” was posted on Twitter by Bob Gillan on April 10, 2020. “So apparently it takes a village to raise a child, but it might take a vineyard to home school one??” was posted on Twitter by Yazmin Pernett on April 10, 2020.

Wikipedia: It takes a village
It takes a village to raise a child is an African proverb that means that an entire community of people must interact with children for those children to experience and grow in a safe and healthy environment. The villagers look out for the children. This does not mean an entire village is responsible for raising a child or the children of a crowd.

Wikipedia: 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak

If it takes a village to raise a child, it’s gotta take a brewery to homeschool one.
