From home schooling to 'unschooling'

September 3 Baltimore Sun Story:

From home schooling to 'unschooling'
Parents believe in letting children set the pace

Several people were interviewed, the negative "balance" isn't too bad, and it's well done. I wish the editors had let the writer, Joe Burris, go on at greater length, because it seems a lot of prep was done for it.

As usual, some of the online comments are hostile and goofy.

Note from the day after, from my friend Leon:

Hey Sandra,

You've probably already been forwarded this, but just in case you haven't:,0,7747410.story

I'm a devout Slashdot reader, and their commentaries are often more insightful than the original article (or at least humorous). I haven't read the Slashdot commentary yet, though.
