Update 41: John Naylor reports that the Wissmanns, a musical homeschooling family of 14 from Nebraska, will be performing in Guthrie, Oklahoma this Friday. Here's their complete schedule and their bona fides.
Update 42: FYI: A freeper passed along this article titled, "Homeschool Graduates Considered ‘Preferred Enlistees’ In Armed Services."
Update 43: Hey, the 'Revolution gets a plug at this end of this article about a Steelers fan-teacher who got carried away razzing a Broncos fan-student. At the least, the bullying clown should give that teen an automatic "A" if the Steelers lose the Superbowl, and Mr. Ethnic Studies should be made to wear a Seahawks shirt to class. Preferably an Alexander the Great jersey.
Update 44: The fourth Carnival of Homeschooling is taking place at the Common Room.
Update 45: Bode Miller, 28, made the cover of Time magazine last week. Miller, who recently made controversial, reckless remarks regarding skiing and drinking, is described as a "rebel," "wild child," "mad scientist," "rock-star popular," "showman," and "the world's best ski racer." Phew! He also happens to have a homeschooling background that teeters on isolationist and deprived, but he seems to have no angst about it. His story.
Update 46: Over at the Mises site, Tim Swanson attempts to answer the question: "Will the university survive?"

The Teaching Company, Thinkwell, ALEKS, EPGY from Stanford, CTY from Johns Hopkins - the list of available services for children and teenagers continually grows, due in part to a public school system which has its head stuck in the 19th century."
Update 47: William Norman Grigg, devoted homeschool dad and hubby, writes about slave labor, designer clothing, Tom DeLay, Jack Abramoff, and the Chinese communist party.
