    The Cass County Democrat Missourian is running a series on home education:

    Editors note: This is the first in a three-part series about home schooling in Cass County. The series will address why people home school, the benefits of educating in the home and the misconceptions that tend to go hand-in-hand with the term “home school.”

    This first one is quite positive:

    There are many benefits to home schooling including flexibility, one-on-one attention and strong family closeness.

    “One benefit is to be able to teach each child according to their natural learning bent,” Brantley said. “One-on-one instruction allows one to focus on some of the more difficult areas and to move more quickly in areas that are easily mastered. There isn’t much boredom because you move ahead at your own speed.”

    See? Not even a “Homeschool advocates claim” modifier at the front of that first graf. It’s all like that.

    I’m looking forward to parts II and III.

    UPDATE: It appears that the Democrat Missourian is a weekly “paper.”
