This is the best pro home-schooling article I've ever read. It is lengthy for each of the 55 reasons is explained, sometimes in great detail, sometimes with embedded links and videos. Brilliant. Stephanie writes...

"What is Homeschooling? Homeschooling is teaching your own children at home, as it was done before the state took over schools.
