Emergency homeschooling

You know the rap on home-schooling: It’s either for bigoted fundamentalist Christians who want to shelter their children from the world, or for hippies who can’t stand authority.

From the Washington Post today comes a different type of homeschooling student, the one engaged in emergency homeschooling: “Brodie had no intention of abandoning the public schools of Lexington, Va. She just wanted a respite from battles over homework and some temporary distance from the pressures of standardized testing.”

Matthews quotes from Home  Education Magazine, a first stop for anyone interested in homeschooling.
