    I really admire this professor. He’s reaching out to high school-age kids and getting them excited about science. His program started in the g-schools but has now expanded to working with homeschoolers, too. Only one problem, though-

    And you’re now reaching out to home-schoolers as well?

    Yes. I realized there was a huge home-school population. The Oregon Department of Education says that something like 20 percent of the students in Oregon are home-schooled. Our home-school outreach program has grown to include 300 kids taking 20 different classes taught by my science majors. They team up with students who are training to be teachers.

    No way, no how 20 percent of Oregon kids are homeschooled. I hope he doesn’t cancel his work with homeschoolers when he realizes he’s off by an order of magnitude.
