Letters | Boston looks to find path to best schools

Home-schoolers freed from confines, stresses of public education

Kudos to Jeff Jacoby for shedding light on the obvious but too-rarely discussed role parents must play in the education of our children in his March 10 op-ed column “Liberate schools from government.” Jacoby courageously asserts what so many of us home-schooling families already know and experience daily.

Clear aside the unionized, government-sponsored public-schooling industry in the United States and you will begin to encounter loving parents purposely nurturing grounded, spirited children who love learning. Home-schooled kids experience the world as their classroom rather than the confines of the nearest or best concrete building assigned.
