Description

The Time Magazine looks at the home-school movement and examines people's wrong assumptions about it. The story finds that "the new home schoolers aren't hermits," but "diverse parents who are getting results - and putting the heat on public schools." The reporters point to many examples of high achievers who - after getting inadequate treatment by teachers - have been schooled at home and continued their education in the most elite colleges of the country. The article reveals that home-schoolers have higher test scores and view television fewer hours than other students do. The story finds that public confidence in the schools is eroding.
