    It doesn’t get much better than this:

    What Neapolitan [i.e., Naples, FL] Harold Green saw when he judged the homeschooled youths who competed in the regional speech and debate tournament sponsored by the National Christian Forensics and Communications Association (NCFCA) earlier this month at Edison College was, in a word, refreshing.

    “I was reminded of the value of homeschooling,” Green said. “This competition was not some isolated incident. These bright, well-educated young people have come from across four states. I find it especially interesting to note how well they relate to adults. As I see it, this is a real concern with most youngsters today – but not with these kids.

    “Across the board, they have a ‘look-you-in-the-eye with a firm handshake and a smile’ personality,” Green continued. “Then, should there be any doubt about the day, it disappears when they begin to perform. They have worked so hard and are so focused. Young, directed energy with healthy self- confidence, plus usable knowledge at the tips of their tongues.”
