The Homeschooling Revolution



September 03, 2007

Homeschoolers: Those Backwater Mousy Dolts

Rod Dreher's column - about his son's journey from homeschool to institution and the Dreher family's raison d'etre for selecting a classical Christian school - annoyed several sophisticates in the Big D.

Sophisticates who manage to come off as provincials: "First off, home schooling is for rural families who live a great distance from an educational facility and for people who are afraid of their own shadows."

Meanwhile, this writer (who reviewed a book about the high-achievers at Patrick Henry Collges) marvels, "We might not have suspected the homeschooling movement to cultivate such outgoing personalities."

"We," as in liberals from Massachusetts who write for the San Fran. Chronicle?
