NYT column on homeschooling

Margaret Heidenry write about being homeschooled in the 70s. Her column My Parents Were Home-Schooling Anarchists starts:

Tired of the constraints of the 40-hour workweek, my father, in 1972, quit his job in publishing. My parents were in their early 30s, and they had four children under 7. “But we still wanted to explore the world,” my father recalled recently. They bought six one-way tickets to Europe, leaving only a laughable $3,000 to subsist on. Young and idealistic, they thought they could easily educate us along the way. “Life itself would become a portable classroom.”

And kind of fun, her father responds with I Was That ‘Home-Schooling Anarchist’
