The above piece really does a good job of trying to disguise the bias. This would be a good article for a home school student to evaluate to see how the author, Matoko Rich, presents an opinion while pretending to present only factual information. Illustations are chosen to present homeschooling as a low content version of the real thing. The only testimonial of a home school graduate is one student who completed her homeschooling in New Jersey and has since gone on to be a doctoral student at the University of Michigan, according to her academica.edu page. This isn't a bad article, but it is an opinion piece in place of a true new content. This is why we (and our children) must be careful to scrutinize our news sources.
