Using and Abusing Analogies: The Homeschool Edition

8 05 2008

Dana’s got a new piece taking homeschool analogies to pieces, in Heart of the Matter.

Feel free to post other analogies that annoy you in the comments here, especially if you can put your finger on what’s wrong with them. (Extra points for funny!)

Well-working analogies welcome too, if you know some. I remember a really good one for unschooling, about a free, open walking park where all sorts of people just can’t get the concept, keep pouting or asking to bring in vehicles; they won’t join in but also can’t seem to leave the happy walkers alone! Sandra Dodd’s site, I think? I’ll look tomorrow if someone doesn’t offer it before then . . .
