NYT BLOWS IT The NYT has a lengthy piece about cyber charters. It’s pretty good except that they call it “homeschooling” throughout. They point out that the homeschooling community has some problems with cyber charters but I think they miss the reason.

Online schools also have detractors among parents who school their children on their own and who say that a set curriculum discourages independence.

Lots of homeschoolers use set curricula. The problem is not the curriculum; it’s having to be accountable to the state for following the curriculum. That and newspapers confusing cyber charters with homeschooling.
