Links to interesting posts - 30 Nov 2006

Barbara Frank, The Imperfect Homeschooler, writes about Rethinking Overscheduling in response something in the Chicago Tribune about a mother who has realized that scheduling every minute of a child's life is a bad idea.

Carolyn, of Guilt-Free Homeschooling, gives a concrete example of Applying Learning Styles with Skip-counting.

HomeSchoolBuzz found an article about a 13-year-old boy who as entered college: Day in the life of a 13-year-old college freshman. Jonathan Link was first accepted to college when he was 8-years-old. Public schools never allow children with great capacity to fully develop. It is like putting a race horse with a plow horse.

Spunky wonders if there is an organized attack on unschooling in her post The Unschooling Conspiracy.

Thanks for the link. I'll have to check out that over scheduled post too. I've been a bit behind on my blog reading so I appreciate the round-up.
