Home Schooling on AOL

Apart from the myth that homeschoolers have problems with socialisation...(AOL, I pay my sub, listen to me - THIS IS NOT A PROBLEM - eg: there are support networks for Home Educators all over the country) this article from AOL gets it more or less right.

Something you might enjoy: a few months ago, younger son was threatened (unwisely) by an older boy who wanted his phone. The conversation went like this:

Boy: gimme yer mobile
YS: p**s off
Boy: what school d'yer go to?
YS: I'm home educated
Boy: (pausing to gob on pavement) Oh, so you ain't got no social skills then
