Links to interesting postings - 17 Feb 06

Spunky at SpunkyHomeSchool reviews some of the issues in deciding who is called a homeschooler. This is an important issue for a number of people. After reading Spunky's thoughts you'll have a better understanding why.

HomeSchoolBuzz continues to help us stay on top homeschool news. From here is a link an article about a 14-year-old homeschool boy who is doing amazing things. And here is a link to a decent article about how homeschooling can be hard, but worth while.

At The Education Wonks, EdWonks had another one of those scary teacher stories. The teacher was taking bribes of a $1 a day to allow his studnets to sit out gym. My fustration about scary teachers is not that they exist, we have scary people in almost any large group of people, but that in general it is hard to get rid of teachers are extremely bad teachers, or break the law. It looks like in this case the bad teacher won't be teaching again.

Thanks for directing folks to my post on who is a homeschooler. This issue needs to be addressed and understood.
