Homeschool vs. Public School?

3booksAn article titled Home-school vs. Public School for news station KAUZ in Wichita Falls, Texas, opens with this comment from the President and the question it ostensibly raises:

“President Barack Obama sparked controversy earlier this week with the announcement that he believes American kids don’t spend enough time in school. He said by having kids spend more time in the classroom, it would put them on par with young people in other countries. But what about home-schooling? Is it more advantagous than public schools?”

That premise is never really addressed, however, and the article wanders around before ending with the somewhat irrelevant statement: “In order for home-schooled students to transition to a public school, children do need to be tested for placement.”
