    In an article on a new K12 cyber-charter, we have an “expert” quoted who would have been better-served keeping his mouth shut:

    “Online learning is the greatest boon ever to home schooling,” said Maeroff, director of the Hechinger Institute on Education and the Media at New York’s Columbia University. “All of a sudden, public funds are available to support these kids.”

    I have no problem with cyber-charters, per se, as long as they aren’t referred to as homeschooling. The only thing they have in common is where it occurs. My local polling place is the elementary school down the corner. Does that make me a 1st grader? (link via Izzy at the Homeschooling Revolution)
