Homeschool carnival

David St Lawrence, ex-Silicon Valley "riches to rags" story, author of Danger Quicksand Have a Nice Day, has an entry about homeschooling:
We have a lot of home schooled students in Floyd County and I am always impressed with their maturity and creativity.

In my opinion, one of the absolute killer benefits of homeschooling is that children can easily get more education in a couple of hours of homeschooling than they can get from a full day of public school.

No two and a half hour commute, no endless waiting between moments of real activity.

Home schooled kids probably get 4 to 5 extra hours a day to be creative and to help out around the home or participate in the family business. That can be a serious advantage to them and their parents in today's high-pressure world.
