Susan Ryan at Crossroads Conservative wrote a compelling news piece about a court case brought on by the teachers union in Chicago this week that tried to pair up the K12 charter school with the definition of homeschooling in an effort to cut them loose from government funding. The judge involved fortunately had a clear understanding of both educational methods and defined them both decisively. Of particular interest to the Chicago homeschooler is the lovely quote deep in to the article where a representative from the teachers union claims that there is no way a virtual school can address the emotional and social needs of a student outside of a classroom scenario.There are plenty of links and video and quotes galore in this article. Enough to make your hair stand up in fact. This article is well written and researched  by Ms. Ryan. I wonder if this suit was in part as a response to the budget cuts the Board of Education just passed?
