NYT on homeschooling

Homeschooler at work

The New York Times, in an embarrassingly unbalanced piece, portrays homeschoolers as unqualified, negligent religious zealots. Their lead vignette is blatantly snobbish:

“In a modest two-bedroom duplex in this town along the Allegheny River, 10-year-old Elijah sat on the floor in the living room on a recent afternoon. He paged through a workbook that Ms. Wiles had bought the day before at a Sam’s Club store, and went through a few questions about birds.”

For counterbalance: “Why Homeschoolers are Winning”.
