Update 93: It's no secret that school crimes are frequently committed by teachers and administrators. But that inconvenient fact hasn't prevented a couple of Oklahoma interventionists from wanting to turn the educratistas into a protected class.
Take a sip of ginger tea to prevent the nausea: "Teachers already make great sacrifices without having to worry about being assaulted," sayeth Carey the Democrat.
Update 94: A couple of days ago Judy Aron sent me a link to the Business Week story about homeschoolers (bloggers have been e-talking about this one). But I'm linking to it, via Free Republic, as deschoolers will appreciate the comments about college that followed.
Update 95: I 'second' the compliments given to the Pilot G-2 rollerball pen. Comes in a mini-size, too!
Update 96: Bode Miller seems bitter: "Fame is like a poison. I don't care for it. I used to have a better life when I was nobody." Now that statement would have really made waves (moguls?) if he'd added "a homeschooling nobody."
Update 97: Conversely, snowboarder Shaun White, who won a gold medal for the halfpipe, is stoked. Funny, too.
He describes a gaffe he made while being interviewed on the red-carpet of the ESPY awards: "They're like, 'Who are you looking forward to seeing, Shaun?' And I'm like, 'The Serena sisters'. I totally blew it. No, it's -- yeah, it was the Williams sisters who were there." Now that statement would have really made waves (gigandoidtrons?) if he'd added the "the homeschooled Williams sisters."
Update 98: Braden Juengel, of Edmond, Oklahoma, is a home scholar who scored a 36 (perfect score!) on the ACT.
From the Sun: "Braden was one of only three college-bound students in Oklahoma and one of 39 in the United States to achieve 36, the highest possible composite score on the October 2005 national test administration of the ACT."
Update 99: The Dutchy of New York, who follows the doings of the Free State Project and knows of my interest in home ed. and New Hampshire, passed along a link to this blog.
