Your Opinion: Home school story biased

by Vara Om, Jefferson City | January 17, 2015 at 4:30 p.m. | Updated January 17, 2015 at 4:30 p.m.

Dear Editor:

I am writing to address the horribly written article regarding home schoolers that was recently published. Whomever wrote, contributed to, and/or allowed this article to be published should be ashamed.

This piece is biased, negative and hardly reflective of nearly every single home-school family I have ever met (with the exception of one family, and they did horrible in public school too). As a lifelong public school attendee, I can say that school is great and I learned a lot, enough to be currently pursuing a medical career.

However, most of the home-school families in no way resembled the picture that was painted of them in this article. I am usually terrifically impressed at the home-school families and graduates I meet, who are just as (if not more) informed, intelligent and capable as my public school friends and I.

Shame on you, News Tribune!
