I’ve added a new feature to the category list in the righthand sidebar: “Clippings.” Once a week or so, I’ll post links to articles I’ve read and enjoyed and/or found thought-provoking. I may not always agree with the viewpoints expressed by the authors, of course, so consider this the obligatory caveat.
Here’s a viewpoint I do agree with: Sharon the Opinionated Homeschooler has posted a first-rate piece on the socialization myth at her site. (As is so often the case, the nod goes to Daryl Cobranchi for the tipoff.)
And I enjoyed this essay on the merits of Winnie the Pooh: “Lessons From a Bear of Very Little Brain.”
The always informative Kasemans take a thorough look at the homeschooling tax credits issue in this month’s Home Education Magazine.
Scott sent me the link to this Salon.com article, “Homework Hell.” I have several good friends who can relate to Ayelet Waldman’s disgruntlement.
