Steve Rose – The parallel universe of home-schooled students

Here is a great article on Home schooling in Kansas

The three superintendents of the three major school districts in Johnson County, Kansas,  say they have little contact with home-schoolers, even though they are required to provide certain services, if requested. None even knew how many home-schooled students are in their districts.

But out there is a parallel system that runs counter to everything these superintendents practice on a day-to-day basis.

The fact that it apparently is a successful system is counter-intuitive. But if it did not usually work, and if it did not fulfill religious values, home-schooling would not be the fastest- growing form of education in America.
