While I was looking for a quick snip from Daryl about how “it’s not homeschooling” to use as a reply to this Canadian report, I found a link at Chris’sÂ to a post Lioness made (the Mississippi one, not the Washington one)Â about the efficacy of individualized instruction.
I’ll give the public-school-at-home report a miss because Lioness’s blog post is much more interesting.

“In study after study, whenever tutoring is matched against some competing pedagogy, including technology, tutoring wins handily. In his own research (Benjamin) Bloom found that tutored students outdistance 98 percent of those taught in conventional groups settings.(7)”
Lioness has more at the link.
