Corey DeAngelis is finally here! This week we'll be working to defend home education against the most facile and predictable of criticisms, coming from a still formidable opinion-shaping academic institution.
It's Harvard Weak (week)! Harvard magazine publishes an incredibly weak assault on homeschooling. That piece points us to a scholarly article in the Arizona Law Review, which is mind-bending in its weakness and unchecked premises. And all of this is in anticipation of an upcoming anti-homeschooling summit at Harvard Law School. So we'll see how that goes! But I predict weak.
Fortunately a very impressive group of self-directed education advocates - Cevin Soling, Corey DeAngelis, Kerry McDonald, Patrick Farenga, and Peter Gray - has organized a response; it's a virtual conference called The Disinformation Campaign against Homeschooling, hosted by Ideological Diversity, a student organization at Harvard Kennedy School.
It's happening this Friday at 2pm ET and you can learn more HERE.

Today Corey and I will discuss the Harvard Magazine article, academic, and shifting public opinions on home education. This Wednesday we'll dig in to the longer article in The Arizona Law Review. And we hope to see you Friday at the conference!
