Ah, stereotypes. They always make us feel special. I’ve been trying to ignore this post, mainly because I have enjoyed reading the Huffington Post on many occasions before. Also, because it clearly already has enough comments to represent the whole gamut of opinions out there on the topic, including yours and mine. Basically, it is […]

(Along the Trollway in Wisconsin) The only problem I have with the majority homeschooling/unschooling articles I’ve read in the past year is that they tend to follow a predictable format.
