"Home Sweet Homeschool"

A professor at Santa Clara University whose children are homeschooled published this article in last week's American Spectator.

One of the interesting thoughts in this article is that homeschooling parents are left relatively alone by the educational system because: "They don't like outspoken parents, and they sense that the kinds of parents who would go to all the trouble of homeschooling are exactly the pushy types they don't want in their own system."

Read the article for more. I think he's right, not only about that point but about some of the blessings of homeschooling. When I see the hours of homework my oldest brings home from high school, I can't help thinking that keeping up that kind of punishing pace is unnecessary.
