    The AP discovers black home educating families. It’s terrific whenever any group of folks takes their kids’ education seriously, so I’m more than happy that the MSM is noticing that home education is not a W.A.S.P. phenomenon. Of course, the trend that the AP has discovered is 10 years old. Better late than never.

    Please don’t overlook the use of quotes from Michael Apple. This guy’s opinion are dangerous, imo.

    I highly recommend reading Nicky Hardenbergh’s piece responding to Mr. Apple and his ilk: users....RA.pdf

    Nicky’s paper was later published in “Home Schooling in Full View: A Reader” edited by Bruce S. Cooper which came out of the conference that the paper was written to address. It can be purchased at: users....89.pdf

    For any of you with interest you can read a discussion of Mr. Apple et al at nhen.o...ID=614 and here: home.k...ns.htm

    And you’re a copycat:
