This column, about home education in Idaho, had something for everybody interested in state ed. issues including information about how little the Treasure State (compared to other states) spends on its pupils and a governor who is enthusiastic about parentally-driven schooling.
It also features a quote by my friend Bob Forrey, and a criticism from the requisite hackette.
Sayeth Sherri Wood of the Idaho Education Association about the homeschooled: "They're pretty isolated. They don't have any of those socialization skills. Employers want students who aren't just skilled in academics. They want them to get along well with other people."
