If you give someone enough rope

they'll eventually hang themselves. That's the thought that came to mind when I read this quote today,

Many times homeschooled children have a very difficult time accepting the views of others when those views differ from their own - which tends to make them rather
intolerant of competing practices. - Dr. Jim West
That's the same Dr. West who didn't allow dissenting comments on his blog! So who's intolerant of competing practices? He has a few more choice quotes here.

His comments aside, the Cape Cod Voice (tip: click on text to make it readable) has devoted a whole issue to the pros and cons of homeschooling, you may want to take a look. It's lengthy and I haven't read it all yet, so let me know what you think.
