Homeschooling in the News
Barb and her boys did a wonderful job at representing homeschoolers. I love some of her quotes even if the reporter did misrepresent a few things (he said that her kids will not receive a diploma and would have to take the GED or take an online course to get a certificate of completion…while it is true that her kids will not receive a diploma from the state of Virginia, she can issue her own diploma. And yes, homeschooled kids without a state issued diploma can and do get into colleges but that is the subject for a different post).
It was fun to see Barb's boys…what I want to know is where the piles of books and papers and the overflowing bookcases were…at least that is how my house looks!
Update: Barb has posted more information about the interview on her blog. I find it really interesting that even with a story on unschooling they had to have their obligatory "mom teaching kids at the kitchen table" shot. Too funny.
