(+100 credits) + (-50 demerits) = +50 points
Credits: Specific names and interests, writing because of an event (the homeschool mom’s blog post, to which this item links), descriptions in normal words of unschooling and kids’ interests, and mentions of nice places to visit
Deductions: reiterations of school-centered activities
This score surprised me. The article has embedded ‘positives’ that might pique a reader’s interest, despite the writer’s disagreement with the original writer’s activities.
