Home Schooling Works
I recently read, “Home schooling presents pros and cons” (Jan. 10), and while it was nice to see the subject addressed, I will admit your article was a bit distressing. As an 11-year veteran of home schooling and soon to be a doctor with a Ph.D. in education, I was disturbed at your focus on the purely negative aspect of home schooling socialization.
Regina Leader-Post, Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, 26 January 2007, Students do well learning at home
Currently, 30 schools in southern Saskatchewan are under review. While their closures could unfortunately result in a real loss of income for both teachers and support personnel, there are quite a number of people who could potentially benefit.

The Cowl (Providence College) (subscription), Providence, Rhode Island, 27 January 2007, Homeschooling: Are parents making the grade in educational decisions?
The op/ed rambles from Germany to the local DMV, but I think the upshot is …
Clearly, a state monopoly over education is merely one step away from tyranny and indoctrination. Actions against home-schooling must be fought if we are to insure true and continued liberty.
The point seems to be that homeschooling freedoms are necessary for all educational freedom …. I think that’s what it was.
