    HE&OS’s favorite academic pops up in a pair of posts over at Scott Somerville’s place.

    Sometimes I want to really dig in and engage him thoughtfully, because I agree with Scott that he’s a good guy and deserves to be answered, and other times it strikes me that he’s so divorced from the realities of home education that it’s pointless — he’s on an island of his own creation and keeps waving off our rescue copters.

    I know what you mean. I ended up by deciding whether or not to get involved in the conversation by asking, do I have the time for this.

    Yes, I had the same quandry. I even prepared to blog about it, got weary before I started and went and did something else. I have the same reaction to Rob Reich as I do Michael Moore.

    I think just about everybody that doesn’t homeschool is so far divorced from our reality that constructive conversation about anything homeschooing related is impossible.

    I’m still waiting to hear why he calls himself a “liberal” when basic liberal political theory is completely opposed to regulation except when there is incontrovertible empirical evidence of a clear and present danger to the health, safety and property of the people. There’s no such evidence in regard to homeschooling, so there’s no reason a liberal should want to regulate it. I just don’t get where he’s coming from evan after reading his writings.
