Home Run: Homeschooling in the New Yorker

2 08 2009

Cock of the snook for this story to Stephanie at Learning Through Living. Home Run for the arts!

Mary, like her three siblings—Lucy, fifteen, John, ten, and Jane, eight, all of whom were in the production—has been homeschooled her entire life. “We were part of a parent-run playgroup, and at some point everyone started testing to get into the right school, and I thought it was insane,” their mother, Erynn Albert, said. (As it turns out, all four Albert offspring have got into the most insanely competitive gifted-and-talented program of them all, the Metropolitan Opera Children’s Chorus; the two middle ones will appear in “Tosca” this fall.)

I really love the last part of that article about the difficulty homeschoolers have getting into college. LOL
“Not to worry: in the fall, Cole will be heading off to M.I.T. on a full scholarship.”
