    An entrepreneur has developed (read, stolen from Netflix) a DVD-rental program for educational DVDs. I guess it might be useful for some folks. What caught my eye, though, was this sentence:

    The composition of the families which homeschool has changed in recent years from [primarily] parents who were unhappy with the public school systems’ lack of religious-based teaching to include a substantial percentage of parents who are college educated and upper middle class.

    They’re not mutually exclusive, ya know.

    He also refers to their marketing system as “multi-level marketing.” That’s a loaded phrase best avoided. Sounds like someone could use a good editor.
