Home Is Where the School Is
By Gregory J. Millman
Sunday, March 23, 2008; B01

. . .”It’s hard to generalize about home-schoolers, but if there’s one thing we know, it’s that we are changing the world, or at least the world of education choices.

Others, though, see us as either misguided or threatening — and probably cheered last month’s California appeals court ruling that all children in the state must be taught by credentialed teachers. . .

. . .But “home-schooling” is a misnomer, really. Most of it doesn’t even take place at home, and the schooling has little in common with what goes on in school. . .”

Gregory J. Millman is co-author, with Martine Millman, of “Homeschooling: A Family’s Journey,” to be published in August.

Cool, huh? 🙂
(Ack, we’re not all supposed to pretend that it isn’t there until tomorrow, are we?)

No need to pretend — we can be reality-based even in the future. 🙂

“Conventional schools are like the nation’s Rust Belt companies, . . . ”

And even if it is set in the future, 🙂 I liked the article.
