  • AN OPEN LETTER TO HOMESCHOOL.COM

    I received an email from homeschool.com pushing The Old Schoolhouse. My response:

    Dear Editor:

    TOS Editor Gina Suarez is a vocal supporter of Michael & Debbie Pearl, who encourage their followers to beat young children with plumbing supplies in order to instill discipline. Right-thinking homeschoolers are boycotting everything associated with TOS and the Pearls. I guess that may have to include homeschool.com

    I guess I’ve taken myself so far off the homeschool mainstream that I don’t even rate a spam magazine subscription offer.

    I just left homeschoolblogger for various reasons, including what you are describing here. Great letter!

    […] Homeschool.com is now shilling on the behalf of This Old Schoolhouse. I just searched ODonnellWeb for Homeschool.com references. I’ve linked to them one time in six years, and that was when I was questioning how Forbes.com could name such an ad-laden, worthless web site as a Best of the Web. […]
