How to Properly Criticize Homeschooling

Yesterday on Mom Is Teaching, Summer had an excellent profile on "How To Hate On Homeschoolers Properly." (HT: Just Enough) Summer pulled from this "Essay" by Jack, as she explained

the 5 rules you have to follow to write a rant as powerful and defined as Jack’s is. I have seen so many people try to discredit home education but fall short every time of really publishing the kind of rant that has most of us falling out of our chairs in fits of laughter.

Be sure you read the comments, too - on both blogs if you can find the time; those on Jack's are mostly thoughtful commentaries on the problems with his piece, while those on Summer's are just plain fun.

If you're looking for a good critique of Jack's essay (as opposed to light, fun reading), be sure to also click over to Doc's blog. He has some excellent points and actually provides research to back them up.

This was a fun blog! I would have posted on the original one, but there didn't seem to be any point. Many of the comments there were very articulate, as well.

Yes, I thought it was very cute and funny, and I also enjoyed the comment section.
