    It’s not homeschooling, but the teacher’s unions seem to be reading from the same playbook they use for opposing us:

    The union contends the online setting would violate a state school code that mandates “non-home based” charter schools. Virtual Academy president Sharon Hayes denied the program would be “home schooling children” since they would learn in the classroom as well.

    The planned school would enroll students citywide and serve physically disabled and gifted students or those from underperforming schools as part of the city’s Renaissance 2010 initiative. Students would work primarily from home with the help of a parent or another responsible adult.

    One of the union’s biggest concerns is that students would be hindered socially and academically.

    Yeah, they actually invoked the “S” word. Hilarious. (via CRAFT)
