Homeschooling Is Not a Public Threat

Friends, I’m really humbled to have an opinion essay in today’s Wall Street Journal. I respond to a very disturbing feature in Harvard Magazine that uses tired and untrue tropes about homeschooling families to make a broad case for outlawing it. My response draws both on my experience of being homeschooled and the facts of homeschooling in the US. I hope this essay serves in a small way to help people think more carefully about a hugely important issue.

You can find the article here. My apologies if it is paywalled…though the Journal is running a special 1 month digital subscription for $1!

  1. And extra credit for pushing the WSJ subscription. People complain about the paywall as if there’s no simple way to get through it.

  2. I’d truly love to read your article in the WSJ but I don’t do “trial” subscriptions to anything (once they have my info, it’s too easy for it to be compromised). Why can’t you also post it on your blog?
