On Linda Dobson’s Parent at the Helm (PATH) long-time homeschooling advocate and writer Mary McCarthy shares her observations about a troubling tendency: “…I believe, although this is the only “evidence” I have, that young people are being taught to hate homeschooling, and by extension, home schooled families. They are being taught that its perfectly permissible, even rewarded with good grades, to make homeschoolers targets for hate speech and writing.
“Would teachers assign students to write negative essays about any other minority and get away with it?”
It’s a thoughtful essay about a problem of increasing concern.
Larry and Susan Kaseman wrote about this situation in their column titled “Working for Homeschooling Freedoms: Chore or Opportunity?”
