    “Socialization is important, but it doesn’t have to happen in school…”

    The article is entirely positive. The reporter will likely be fired for writing such an “unbalanced” piece. 🙂

    No doubt! 🙂

    But still, this was a little jarring– does North Dakota require specific subject credits of homeschoolers??

    “Last fall Bristol taught ballet to some of the children in the homeschooling group, which counted toward the state’s physical education requirement.”

    North Dakota is one of the strict states for homeschooling. I haven’t had a military homeschooler from North Dakota on the email list lately, but every once in a while one pops up.

    Thanks Valerie, should’ve remembered your military site experience would give you that multistate perspective — didn’t we have a South Dakotan active in the NHEN forums and in the moderator group, JenBin I think?

    I guess I had lumped the Dakotas together as wide-open spaces with rugged individualist types leaving hsers to their own devices . . .
