A Shout Out for Home Schooling

I found this article via the World Mag Blog. The AP has a nice write-up here that is very flattering to home schoolers. The article focuses on home schoolers' transition to college life. As a Grove City College grad, of course I knew many home schoolers. In my experience, home schoolers there were certainly at least as well equipped for collegiate academics as the more mainstream students were, and the dreaded social maladjustment was largely a myth.

I, however, would be hard-pressed to home school any child of mine after eighth grade. Of course, that is largely so that they can know the immeasurable joys of attending their own high school's athletic events.
