I just read an interesting article about homeschooling on one of the many Gawker-branded sites. Though I’m not a homeschooler myself, I have talked back and forth with several homeschoolers in the past few weeks who have convinced me that it’s doable. Not something that I want to do, but something that can be done if people have the right motivation and interest.
In any case, have a read here: http://adequateman.deadspin.com/a-normal-parents-guide-to-homeschooling-1782287817. It may not be your cup of tea, but it’ll at least give you an idea of where homeschoolers are coming from.
