    This is a terrific [/snark] way to “sell” home education. How many mistakes can you spot?

    The same survey also stated that the income and education level of homeschool parents did not have an effect to the success of their children.

    However, there was a direct correlation between public school children’s’ scores with parents education and income (students with well educated and wealthier parents achieved higher scores than children of poorly educated, low-income parents.)

    Let’s hope the copy writer and copy editor were g-schoolers.

    Good heavens! That is one of the reasons I cancelled my subscription to the local newspaper. I think they must have cut their budget, as no one appeared to be proofreading their articles. It is very unprofessional, in my opinion, to be publishing articles with errors that any 6th grader should pick up on.
