Why Urban, Educated Parents Are Turning to DIY Education a Newsweek story via The Daily Beast

In the beginning, your kids need you—a lot. They’re attached to your hip, all the time. It might be a month. It might be five years. Then suddenly you are expected to send them off to school for seven hours a day, where they’ll have to cope with life in ways they never had to before. You no longer control what they learn, or how, or with whom.

Unless you decide, like an emerging population of parents in cities across the country, to forgo that age-old rite of passage entirely.

  1. Very interesting article. Sadly, home schooling is given more credence in this case because the parents are both professionals, it is not an evangelical family sitting around the kitchen table and it shows the non-school choice as both chic and upscale urban. We all know that it can be down down-scale and on the cheap and still be incredble…right? :)
