Controversial Homeschooling Article

If you'd like a read of a very interesting, but controversial, homeschooling article and a blog post all about it, pop over to 'A Peaceful Day' - Jeanne has written an excellent post about the article, as well as provided the link to it. 

It has certainly had me thinking a lot about things the past few days - exactly how much is the 'minimum' we should cover, and who is it that should decide what that 'minimum' is?  What if the parent is ill - should they continue with homeschooling, knowing that not everything they'd like to cover will be covered?  Would the child be better off at home anyway, or would they be better off in the school system?  And, what is more important - morals, or academics?

Very interesting information......
