    Colleges Coveting Home-Schooled Students

    The article is pretty darm good, and includes one of the best home education quotes I’ve seen:

    Terry Smith, a political science professor and the school’s dean of academic affairs, home-schooled three of his four children in the 1970s and ’80s. Each of those children went on to graduate from college, with two earning master’s degrees.

    “All of my professional work has been influenced by this family schooling experience,” he said. “We’re all teachers and learners. They’re just the apprentices, and we’re the master learners.”
